Danxia, Yardang and Karst landforms are the three most common terrains in China. They are the result of different types of erosion. Combined with geological structure and climate changes, these landforms decorate the earth with a unique landscape that any other area pales in comparison. In this 7-part photo series, we will take a peek at places in China that well represent the characteristics of the mentioned landforms.

Karst landform is characterized by caves, sinkholes or forest of tall toothy rocks left by the water erosion. When it comes to viewing the natural arts of the stone jungle in China, Yunnan offers one of the best. The place is the result of millions of years' water erosion and covered with diverse features such as waterfalls, lakes and caves.
