    Stop At: Stone Forest, Shilin County 652200 China

    About 1.5 hours from Kunming lies one of Yunnan greatest wonders, the Stone Forest. Wander through a labyrinth with ancient stone trees looking down on you or see the forest of limestone pinnacles from above. This area used to be an ocean about 270 million years ago until the earth’s crust rose and the limestone pierced through. Weather and time have sculpted a unique 350 km2 karst maze unlike anywhere in the world. Every rock formation you pass has its own touching story or thrilling legend, passed on by the natives who have lived in this area for ages. The natives belong to the Sani minority, a branch of the Yi ethnic minority, and you can find them still meandering the area, jamming and singing folk songs as they create their traditional embroidery.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Jiuxiang Scenic Region, Jiuxiang Country, Yiliang (Zhaotong) County 652114 China

    Not far from the Stone Forest we will descend down under the ground into the Jiuxiang Caves, a fairyland hidden within the largest cave group system in China with winding rivers, steep gorges, surging waterfalls, lush forests and natural stone ridges. Take a floating boat ride on the river through narrow green canyons and see the entrance of the hundreds of karst caves concealed by the forests from above as you fly over it in the cable car. Jiuxiang is not just a cave, it is a hidden magical world.
