yunnan Yuanmou County The Earth Forest tulin 3——Geological wonders of nature
Yunnan

Yuanmou County of China's Yunnan Province is well-known for such natural wonders. The earth forest is basically in color of yellow and the color varies in different part. It was formed by geological movement and soil erosion one or two million years ago. It is named for its shape like immense forest and the main composition of the expansion earth. The whole landscape of the Soil Forest in Yuanmou is mainly castle, screen, curtain and column, including the highest about 40 meters and very grand.

  Actually, the earth of Yuanmou Earth Forest is rock, a kind of sand rock mixed with clay. It has yellow color and loose texture. The rocks are seriously weathered thus their surface looks very much like earth. The yellow rocks gleam under the sunlight as if they are built with gold. Larger ones are like castle while smaller ones are like pylon, in various shapes. Really magnificent! The earth forest is widespread in Yuanmou Basin. Different areas have different features due to extent they have been weathered and eroded. The three notable scenic sites are Tiger Leaping Sands, Ban Guo and Xin Hua. Each of them has its own distinguishing feature.
