Stone Forest China – amazing rocks
Stone Forest China is a set of karst formations that date back there are about 270 million years ago , when a trip to China is far less developed than it is now . These formations formed by erosion and dissolution of soluble bedrock such as limestone , leaving a residue of stone is much more difficult .
Karst formations vary in shapes and sizes and can vary from large underground lakes and caves limestone floor . Spectacular as the Stone Forest , it is not unique and similar formations formed around the world in places such as France and Hérault in El Torcal , Spain .
