Located in Lunan Yi Nationality Autonomous County, the forest is a special type of limestone formation known as karst. Some 270 millions years ago the area was submerged in a lake and a thick layer of limestone deposited on the bottom. The movement of the earth's crust caused the sea bottom to thrust upward and become land, and through weathering and erosion over eons, the stone was formed into pillars. These bizarre stone formations stretch up to 30 metres tall and cover a large area stretching into the distance.
