7 Breathtaking Photos of Ten Thousand Peaks Forest, Guizhou

Located in Xingyi City, southwestern China’s Guizhou Province, Wanfenglin, or Forest of Ten Thousand Peaks is a magnificent karst geologic landscape formed by tectonic uplifting, river dissecting, weathering and erosion over many thousands of years.

Forest of Ten Thousand Peaks takes up an area of 2,000 square kilometers, about two thirds the size of the whole Xingyi City.

As early as 300 million years ago, the area was part of an ancient sea. After several orogenic movements, bulging limestone rocks underwent the combined effect of burning sunshine, rain, dioxide and organic acids.

It gradually formed marvellous sights, such as Karst caves, peak forest, natural craters and rift valleys.

The wandering Nahui River threads through the villages like white silk stringing pearls together.

Nahui Village is a perfect destination for those who are interested in farmhouse tours.

Besides the natural scenery, there are various local food and snacks that a visitor shouldn’t miss.
