If you don't just go to Hezhou, you don't even know that there is such a spot in Jade Forest. This piece of stone forest, hidden in the mountains and rivers, has been in existence for hundreds of millions of years. Looking far away, surrounded by rolling hills, this is the southern karst landform, of course, there is a more familiar name - Guilin landscape. Jade Forest, 18 kilometers away from Hezhou City, Guangxi Province. It has been weathered and eroded for thousands of years. The appearance of this stone forest is constantly changing. Some stone pillars have become the image of various animals. You need to use your imagination. Arrived. When I first arrived at the jade forest, there was still a drizzle of rain in the sky. In the blink of an eye, the rain stopped, but the fog did not stop and continued to spread between the valleys. As China's first longevity city, Hezhou's natural environment is undoubtedly excellent. There are many mountains and many trees. Walking around the countryside, people are comfortable green everywhere. The mist formed by water vapor is in the mountains. It doesn't last long. Stone forests in other places are mostly gray-black, and only the jade forest in Hezhou is black and white. The scientist's explanation is that Hezhou Stone Forest has distinctive rock composition. Other stone forests are gray rocks. The rock composition of Hezhou Stone Forest is pure white coarse-grained marble. Most of the stone columns are attached to the surface due to long-term exposure. The dry and weathering of mosses is infested into black, which makes the stone forest black and white.
