The Stone Forest near Kunming, known as Shilin in Chinese, is the place of legends. Many folktales of romance, betrayal, and revenge all share the same setting of Shilin. Seeing the place of these ancient stories is an attraction for some, though the scenery is by far the biggest draw.

The wondrous area is a product of a limestone rock layer that has eroded over the years, leaving magnificent karsts to cover the landscape.
