A rock museum built on the vast grassland in Xinjiang
Huge rocks on grasslands are often placed there by humans. Like Stonehenge, they often stand as records of human civilizations. However, in Jeminay County, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, a stone forest shaped by nature sits alongside the grassland.
This granite corestone landform was formed as the rocks were chipped away and crumbled after years of weathering and erosion. The local Kazakh herders vividly compare these rounded but tough rocks to plump sheep.
