I asked at the Kunming East coach station regarding this attraction and was sold a bus ticket, travelled the two hours there to be told that it was "undergoing development." Staff at the reception desk proceeded to talk about me in Chinese calling me a stupid foreigner as everyone knew it was closed although it wasn't mentioned on any of... More

This part of the Park covered the major rocks including the one with "Shilin character" carved onto it and most of the visitors wanted to take pictures at the foothill when visiting this spot

Some of these "trees" are really beautiful , look like they have been carved by an artist , and since it was... More

This is one of the attractions that should be visited and experienced by just a few hundred persons a day. Unfortunately you will encounter thousands, being transported in electric open vehicles. The scenery is incredibly beautiful, but it will be difficult to take a picture without other tourists.

My 1-day sojourn actually covered the entire Stone Forest, but since this is the only item available, I must so note. I had planned a free day in Kunming for this side trip to Shilin (alternate name), about 2 hrs by car southeast of Kunming. It's well worth any traveler visiting Yunnan, a must I would say. I hooked up... More
