The Stone Forest Scenic Region outside Kunming



Kunming Stone Forest, Shilin, known since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) as the 'First Wonder of the World', is in Lunan Yi Nationality Autonomous County, which is about 120 kilometres (75 miles) from Kunming. It covers an area of 400 square kilometres (96,000 acres) and includes both large and small stone forests, as well as many other scenic spots. An old local saying says that 'If you have visited Kunming without seeing the Stone Forest, you have wasted your time.' Truly, the site is one of the most important attractions of Yunnan.

As you walk through them, you will be amazed at the natural stone masterpieces and be bewitched by the intricate stone formations that are in the shapes of columns, cones, pagodas, and mushrooms, as well as animals, plants, and even human figures. The stones are scattered both densely and sparsely, and some look elegant while others are rugged.
When you are in Kunming, the Stone Forest is a MUST!
