Shilin Stone Forest, Yunnan China

The Chinese province of Yunnan shares much of its border and geology with neighbouring Vietnam. The Shilin Stone Forest is the tourist label for unusual concentration of limestone karst formations that have been carefully curated into a geological theme park. The thin spires and blades of rock create a dense labyrinth of surreal and otherworldly textures.
