The Stone Forest is one of Kunming’s must-see sites. Boasting a classic karst topography, the Stone Forest is full of rocky peaks, jagged rocky outcroppings, water caves, and underground rivers. The Stone Forest is centered around the Major Stone Forest and Minor Stone Forest scenic areas. The Minor Stone Forest is thick with outcroppings of rocky peaks, and the Ashima Stone stands here, named after the legendary Yi maiden who turned into the stone when she was forbidden to marry the one she loved. At the Major Stone Forest scenic area, visitors can enjoy the reflection of the Stone Forest in the Lion Pool, or take a boat ride on the Stone Forest Lake.
