The Red Stone Forest National Geopark is located in the south central of Hunan Province. Covering an area of 20 kilometers square. The park rated as AAAA scenic area of China. The ancient animal fossils can bee seen anywhere in the park. The park outstands with its deep caves and miles of red carbonate-rock stones whose color changes with weather and temperature.

This unusual area is an out of the way attraction. We took a tour bus along a meandering single lane road through some small villages and fields. The entrance fee is quite steep for the attraction, over ¥200. There is a grotto of red rock ( from the iron content) which are not very tall, and layered in an interesting manner. There are some stairways which go through the rocks and you come across a serene natural lake. The area to walk is restricted to the paths they have made. There are a few signs explaining the area and little else. A washroom is available at the entrance and the exit. There is also a small shop selling food and souvenirs.

Really special place to visit in the Hunan region. There are thousands of different shapes red rocks. The colour of rocks changes to red when it is sunny; black when it rains and maroon when it turns to overcast. It covers an area of about 20 square kilometres, geography experts have discovered it's 450 million years old.

Known as Hongshilin or the Red Rocks National Geopark and located within the Xiangxi Tujia-Miao Autonomous Prefecture, this red carbonate forest has many striking interesting layer-like rock formations and their shades change with the weather from black to red. They are formations said to be once under the seabed for millions of years and were uncovered as a result of tectonic plate movements and raised some 1000 metres above sea level. When we were there, there were only local visitors and not as crowded as other attractions. We could walk around comfortably without having to jostle with others. A restful and picturesque place with a lake and lots of vegetation. A definite must-see and visit before it gets overcrowded as the authorities publicise it!
