The stone forest is said to have once been an ocean floor a million years ago. Over time, movements of the earth caused the waters to retreat and the limestone landscape emerged. The stones in the stone forest are what they are today as a result of erosion by water and other elements throughout the years.
The stone forest is divided into two, the small stone forest and the big stone forest, as well as many other scenic spots around the area. The small stone forest consists of smaller stones, while the big stone forest is made up of gigantic stones piling up together to make a huge forest of stones! It is simply an awesome experience walking through the stone forest, admiring the natural stone masterpieces. Superb, extraordinary, and intricate landscapes are found throughout the stone forest. Basically, the whole place is filled with stones, stones, and more stones of various shapes and sizes. It is really a wonder how some stones can stand with such a small base! The complex stone structures of this natural wonder left me in complete awe!
Really, the stone forest is simply breathtaking, magnificent, and great for long walks due to its cooling air. A trip to Yunnan is never complete without a visit to The Shi Lin Stone Forest.
