Wen Shan and Shu Lin, Yunnan Province Images from China Kalpana Image Archives - Asia

All the images on this page are from a visit to Yunnan province in south-west part of China in February 2010.

Most of the images are from Wen Shan county, to the east of provincial capital, Kunming, close to the border with Vietnam. People in Wen Shan still remember the war with Vietnam in the seventies. The city has a tower-shaped Buddhist temple on a hill, from where you have a panoramic view of the city and the surrounding mountains that separate China from Vietnam. Wen Shan is home to Miao ethnic group and you can see their colourful costumes in some of the pictures.

Shi Lin, on the way from Kunming to Wen Shan, is famous for the rock-forest. I couldn't visit the rock forest and a few pictures presented here show the periphery of the rock forest seen from the high way. I was told that in the rock forest the rocks are bigger and more beautiful.
