I arranged this trip myself, with the help of a Chinese friend who took care of the practical travel and accommodation arrangements. If you do not speak Chinese or have no-one who does, doing a trip here privately will not be easy - I guess you'll need to pay a lot more to go with a tour group. Attractions: The... More

It was very interesting and scenic – go if you... More

An interesting 5 mode transport within this attraction - tram, sheepskin raft, donkey ride, cable car and speedboat to see the wonders of this Stone Forest! The use of one's imagination also added to the intrigues of this pretty hot and dry attraction in Baiyin, Gansu, China. Must visit if in Gansu but be prepared to spend almost a day... More

The scenery here was great! The mountains and valley and then the huge stone forest it was a great kinds of trip to see nature and since we went in a down time of the year there weren't many people.
