Welcome to Xiangxi Geopark!  

Shanwan Stone Forest

The stone forest here is gray, sharp and towering, which is a subtropical sword-shaped stone forest. In addition to the cloud-kissing stone peaks, there are also short stone buds and karst caves.If you look carefully, you may find the ancient marine debris and Fusulinids fossils on the surface of stone peaks -- this means that this place used to be an ancient ocean hundreds of millions of years ago.

The stone forest and the plants are in good symbiotic state. Here, trees and rocks are interdependent. Incredibly, in the lush vegetations, you will notice traces of plant roots and bioerosion on the rock surface.
