Fodor's Expert Review Stone Forest

Stone Forest (Shilin) Geological Site Fodor's Choice

The forest's groups of karst, first formed 270 million years ago, have been given names to describe their resemblance to creatures real (turtles) or mythological (phoenixes). Walking through the park you'll find plenty of Sani women eager to act as guides and sell you their handicrafts. The main trail become rather commercialized, but there are plenty of similar formations in other parts of the park.
