China Images

China: Yunnan Province: Wan Shan and Shi Lin

All these pictures are from a visit to Yunnan in February 2010. Wan Shan county is in south-eastern part of Yunnan, close to the Chinese border with Vietnam. Shi Lin, on the way from Kunming to Wan Shan, is famous for its stone forest. The pictures of Shi Lin presented here are taken from the highway and show small rocks. I was told that stone forest with bigger rocks is really breath-taking. However, I could not visit the stone forest.
