Just one hour away from Kunming lies the stunning carsick formation is known as Stone Forest (Shilin).
The area was included on the World Heritage list. Since then, the main area became a popular tourist destination. However, outside the border of the park, it’s easy to find other smaller formations, untouched by mass tourism.
