Just one hour away from Kunming lies the stunning carsic formation known as Stone Forest (Shilin).

The area was included included on the World Heritage list. Since then, the main area became a popular touristic destination. However, outside the border of the park, it's easy too find other smaller formations, untouched by mass tourism.
