The forest of rocks, 10 May 2009

Shillin is a place that comes highly regarded from people who have visited Yunnan so we made the day trip there by bus.

It was a good two hour journey that was broken with a stop off point at a temple. It was a pretty temple and for our first temple in China it was a good 'un.

We arrived at Shillin and it was like Disney Land. Perfectly manicured lawns and lakes with little road trains that guide you around.

Wandering around the Forest of Rocks is pretty special. The rock formations are just incredible and they are pretty giant. From below you really feel as though you are in a forest, which is strange as there are no trees. And when you climb up to the top you feel as if you are on the top of the world. It's a bit like Halong Bay but on land. We should have some awesome pictures that will get added to this blog one day, maybe.
