shilin stone forest


Shilin (literally "Stone Forest") is a notable set of karst formations

in Shilin Yi Autonomous County, in the Yunnan province of southwest China,

approximately 85 km from the city of Kunming.

The tall rocks seem to emanate from the ground in the manner of stalagmites,

with many looking like trees made of stone,

creating the illusion of a forest made of stone.
