Karst wonder is one of the highlights of this Kunming 4 days tour itinerary, and today you are given a chance to unveil this splendor by visiting Jiuxiang Karst Caves and the Stone Forest. After breakfast, accompanied by our experienced guide and driver, you will take a private car to Jiuxiang Scenic Area. The cave cluster, made up of a great deal of underground limestone formations, is one of the typical karst landscapes with a subsurface river traversing through.

Afterwards, a hearty lunch is arranged for you. The rest of the day is left for you to tour the Stone Forest, about 25 miles from Jiuxiang Karst Caves. As the highlight of Kunming, Stone Forest boasts numerous limestone formations in the shapes of pillars and peaks reaching to the sky. The whole scenic area seems to be a giant gray forest, and our guide will help you to find the best viewing deck for photography.

All of them are linked to each other, and the roofs of houses on the lower slope could be served as the playground for dwellers living on the higher slope.
