Like those natural land formations. It is sandy and clay like. Area is huge and need at least 2-3 hours to admire the beautiful scenery. It is not so touristy as the Stone Forest. AAAA attraction, must see! Quite an easy walk with pavements and some steps. Not suitable for wheelchair. Must bring along water, sun hat, umbrella etc. Slap... More

We visited the Lanbapu Earth forest near Yuanmu in march 2014.Few toerists,terrific vieuws.The best is to stay 1 night in the guesthouse (on the sight)so you can watch the nice scenery,also in the early morning light.The walk arround is more or less 6km,with a lot of steps.

Compaired to the Shilin Stone Forest the Yuanmou Earth Forest is a heaven of serenity and tranquillity. Here you can wander around and admire the wonderful clay and sand formations, a display of changing forms and colours.
