South China Karst is one of the world’s most spectacular examples of humid tropical to subtropical karst landscapes. It is a serial site spread over the provinces of Guizhou, Guangxi, Yunnan and Chongqing and covers 176,228 hectares. It contains the most significant types of karst landforms, including tower karst, pinnacle karst and cone karst formations, along with other spectacular characteristics such as natural bridges, gorges and large cave systems. The hills and caves have been an ancient attraction with some inscriptions on its walls dating to 729 AD in the Tang Dynasty. Fan Chengda, a Song Dynasty scholar said of these hills, "I often sent pictures of the hills of Guilin which I painted to friends back home, but few believed what they saw." The beauty of the place and its imposing structures made this an almost spiritual place to visit and experience.
