About Naigu Stone Forest
Unearth the mystique of the Naigu Stone Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, nestled just 9 km northeast of the Major Stone Forest. Named after the Sani term for "old and black," this 30 square kilometer marvel pulses with a primitive and mysterious atmosphere. Its rough, black limestone peaks conjure images of an ancient, solemn palace, and its unique karst topography mimics a forest of petrified trees.
Venture into the heart of this stone forest and unearth an intricate network of caves, a testament to the site's rich geological history. Hike to the top for panoramic vistas of the “black stone sea,” or meander along the rocky trails, each step echoing with tales of the land. The landscape is peppered with uniquely named rock formations— from the "Eight Immortals" to the "Tooth of God," every limestone silhouette tells a story.
