Guizhou xingyi wanfenglin 4——the Forest of Ten Thousand Peaks
Guizhou Province

Wanfenglin, or Forest of Ten Thousand Peaks in Xingyi City takes up an area of 2,000 square kilometers, about two thirds the size of Xingyi City.  It is ranked by the China Geography Magazine as one of the six most beautiful peak forests in China.

 Xingyi is a typical karst region.There is magnificent karst geologic landscape characterized by an alignment of the plateau,gorge,peak-forest and peak-cluster karst,stone forest,and waterfall as well as spring landscape.
 On the slope platform and plane,series of peak-forest and peak-cluster karst are closely linked forming majestic scenery.The gentle-sloped cone karst was formerly formed under ancient geography,and then impacted by the uplifting of the plateau.So,nowadays it is different from the Guilin tower karst in the development time and environment as well as the products.Thus,it has become one of the most complete examples of the global evolution of cone karst.Under the condition of the particular carbonate rock structure,the unique Xingyi karst landscape is formed by tectonic uplifting,river dissecting,weathering and erosion over many thousands of years.So,it is of great scientific significance and ornamental value.
  Wanfenglin Peak Forest is located at the middle and lower reaches of a "beautiful scar on earth ——the Malinghe Valley. The forest spreads out like a fan from the edge of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau at an altitude of over 2,000 meters.
  The peaks are categorized according to the shape: array, sword, dragon, arhat, and piled up hats. The forest extends to the fault zone of the Nanpanjiang River Basin where part was submerged, forming the Wanfeng Lake.
  The water and peaks dotted by craggy Karst rocks and strangely shaped trees create views of extraordinary magnificence and enchantment.
  In the main, the mountains here are not high, but the "bamboo-shoot" serried peaks present an irresistible spectacle. Looking at it from above, you can see unfurling a natural scroll painting of elegance and openness. The green-grey peaks and yellow and green fields each enhance the other's radiance and beauty. The wandering Nahui River threads through the villages like white silk stringing pearls together.
  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.

From whatever aspect you judge it: aesthetic value, completeness of the Karst topography evolution process, diversity, scale and concentration of cone-shaped peak forest, or the classic nature of each spectacle; Wangfenglin Peak Forest deserves its reputation as one of China's wonders.

In the Ming Dynasty some 600 years ago, great Chinese traveler Xu Xiake was here. He was impressed by the landscape and wrote his famous poem which says: "There are numerous peaks on earth and the peaks here are the most beautiful."
