stone forest

One of the natural wonder of the world

In China’s Yunnan Province is the famous stone topography of Shilin, meaning “Stone Forest” Covering an area of three-hundred square kilometers, the stone forest is a massive otherworldly landscape of karst formations over 270 million years old. Stone Forest had been known since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) as the First Wonder of the World. Two of the smaller individual stone forests, NaiguStone Forest and Suogeyi Village, are a part of the South China Karst, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

According to legend, the forest is the birthplace of Ashima, a beautiful girl of the Yi people. After falling in love she was forbidden to marry her chosen suitor and instead turned into a stone in the forest that still bears her name. Each year on the 24th day of the sixth lunar month, many Yi people celebrate the Torch Festival, which features folk dances and wrestling competitions.
