Stone forest: photo feature

Ignoring rainy forecast we started our 80 kilometers long journey from the capital city of Yunnan province, Kunming. I was eager to explore the name of a forest that is created by stones. Can there be a jungle with stones? Can it be described as jungle? There are lots of stones around the earth why that one is called strange Stone forest? There are unique and adventurous stones and rocks around the world? Why those stones are listed in the world heritage?

Almost two hours later we arrived to the destination. Stones were standing with the giant gesture. We entered to the jungle, tall and thick but separated, lots of stones were standing and human flow seems like an ant under their shadows.

We 2 dozen tourists were pursuing the narrow row of footpath, spreading our eyes but at the same time clouds started to rain and we struggled for the safe corners.

 

Many of we hadn’t taken umbrella, some of them who had taken were compelled to help others and finally all got soaked. 

Guides said there are many stories and mysterious curtains need to be opened, so please come back next time. And we shortened our travel from the stone forest. Some pictures are amazing that I captured, going to share with you. 








hope you enjoyed it.

Cheers!!
