Stone Forest

Stone Forest or Shilin is located 95 kilometers from the provincial capital Kunming. The tall rocks resemble like trees arise from the ground creating illusion of a forest made of stone. On this trip, we have chosen an accommodation near HuaShan Xilu so our best option to reach the Stone Forest is by taking subway from Wu Yi Road station to East Coach station for 3 Yuan per person.

Once arrive at the East Coach station, follow the exit sign and you should come out and see a big sign Stone Forest Express Bus.

The trip takes approximately 2 hours and the bus will drop you off at a big building. Walk towards where the trolleys are and you should see the ticket counter. The entrance ticket cost 175 Yuan per person and we have decided to save some time from walking by purchasing the trolley fare for 25 Yuan per person.

Board the trolley and you will be dropped off near the entrance to the Stone Forest.

Make sure you set aside at least 2-3 hours to really explore the park and you will be amazed how beautiful it is. In my opinion this is a must visit if you happen to be in Kunming, Yunnan. Happy traveling.
