This site located around an hour outside of Kunming. Honestly jaw dropping beautiful. Yes there are a lot of people but it is not super crowded like many other attractions around China. It is essentially a huge cave that’s thousands of year old. Inside are...More

Before entering the cave, we took a short boat ride along the narrow valley. We have to put on the life jacket & the protective helmet. As the day was hot, having a boat ride is very refreshing. Next we procced to the Terrifying Gorge....More

The waterfalls and light displays were very nice. Walking along a narrow path through the caves was a good experience. The cable car at the end to take you to the beginning was quite spectacular, dangling 20m up looking at the forests below. Path is...More

In late September the weather should be good. The park will open at that time for sure. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. There are two caves, one leading to another. Both of them are unique and beautiful. There... More

Anyone have comments about this destination? Looks great, and easy drive from Kunming.

A must-visit for any visitor to Kunming. First cave I have been to with a waterfall and travertine pools inside! This spot should be as famous as the Stone Forest but alas it's only well known amongst the locals.

Stone Forest and Jiuxiang (9 Replies)
I would like to visit the Stone Forest, Dadieshui Waterfall, and Jiuxiang Scenic Region. I understand it cannot be done in one day, but I'm not sure where to stay the night. Buses run from Kunming to Stone Forest, has anyone had experience with them? I'm not keen on sitting on a smoke filled bus for two hours. Is it possible to visit the Stone Forest and then get a bus to Jiuxiang, stay the night there and visit the caves in the morning? Then head to Dadieshui, back to Stone Forest and...More

Some people do hire a car and driver and visit these three spots as a day trip from Kunming by getting an early start and returning the same evening. That would be the easiest way. On the other hand, this trip is also not difficult by public bus if funds are tight. It leaves from the East Station (昆明东部客运站。)Trip takes a little over an hour. I don't remember the exact ticket cost, but it wasn't over 50 Yuan. You can spend the night in a small guest house near Jiuxiang (in Yiliang) and...More
