Stone Forest (Shi Lin) is a sort of imfamous tourist trap. It has lots of pointy rocks and even more tourists. Most seem to be on a tour and if you just wander away from the crowds the place is great.

One problem with Stone Forest is getting their. I went on a bus which claimed to be direct. First we stopped at a Jade Market, the at a temple I've never heard, then for lunch. It took four hours to travel 60 km. A friend of mine got a bus that didn't stop at extra places, but it stops in a town near Stone Forest. Then you take a motor bike to another bus station in town, then the mini-bus to the park.

This is complecated but the cheapest and fastest way there.

Address: 60 km south west of Kunming
Directions: See description
