The extraordinarily beautiful ShiLin 石林 Stone Forest Geological Park

石林, ShiLin County, YunNan, south China.

This area, covering around 500 square kilometers in all, lies about 90 km east of the provincial capital KunMing and is comprised of seven scenic areas featuring amazing limestone karst rock formations.

The Stone Forest began around 270 million years ago as a shallow sea. Extensive deposits of sandstone overlaid by limestone accumulated during the Permian period. Subsequent uplift of this region followed by exposure to wind and rain shaped the landscape we see today.

Filmed in Ultra HD (4K).
