The Stone Forest visit consists of a paved track which finished at the top of a pavilion where you can catch a panoramic sight of the forest. The stroll is punctuated by the visit of rock pitons with evocative forms and poetic names like: “Woman awaiting her husband” or “Camels overlapping the Elephant” which attributed all kinds of interesting stories and superstitions.
 
The map of the Stone Forest is printed at the back of the entrance ticket. You can adventure and discover some quiet and uncrowded area by yourself within 3 to 4 hours. Nevertheless, you can be guided by the Sani girls to figure out all those storys behind the rocks.
 
 
Entrance fee of STONE FOREST: 140 RMB per person

Access: The most practical and fastest way is to hire a private car with a driver. The time to get there is approximately one and a half hour.
