YUNNAN’S GEOLOGICAL FORESTS
China is so much more than simply bustling cities and delicious food - this vast and exciting country also has some spectacular scenes of natural beauty, like you will discover on this tour of Yunnan’s Geological Forests.
Whereas you may expect the word ‘forest’ to describe an area densely populated with trees, the geological forests of Yunnan are actually comprised of karst formations grouped so close that they have been playfully nicknamed forests.
This concise three-day, two-night tour takes you to visit two of the region’s most popular and spectacular faux ‘forests’, the Black Stone Forest and the Yuanmou Earth Forest and immerses you deep in the breathtaking nature fresh, clean air of China’s Yunnan province.
- Go on a guided tour of Yunnan’s geological wonders at the lesser-frequented Black Stone Forest
- Visit the Yuanmou museum and learn about the Yuanmou Man, China’s oldest fossilized remains
- Picnic in the Earth Forest, regarded by some as the cradle of humanity, which has reached its present state after two million years of geological movement and soil erosion
