1248 CN - South China Karst (2007)

Brief Description

"The South China Karst region extends over a surface of half a million km2 lying mainly in Yunnan, Guizhou and Guangxi provinces. It represents one of the world’s most spectacular examples of humid tropical to subtropical karst landscapes. The stone forests of Shilin are considered superlative natural phenomena and a world reference with a wider range of pinnacle shapes than other karst landscapes with pinnacles, and a higher diversity of shapes and changing colours. The cone and tower karsts of Libo, also considered the world reference site for these types of karst, form a distinctive and beautiful landscape. Wulong Karst has been inscribed for its giant dolines (sinkholes), natural bridges and caves."

中国南方喀斯特
"中国南方喀斯特地区主要分布在云南、贵州和广西等省份,占 地面积超过50万平方公里。中国南部喀斯特地貌丰富多样,富于变幻,举世无双。这处遗产呈连续性分布,主要可分为三个区域:荔波喀斯特、石林喀斯特和武隆 喀斯特。中国南方喀斯特地形是全球湿润热带及亚热带喀斯特地形的典型代表。石林喀斯特被誉为自然奇观,是世界级参照标准。石林包括由含白云石的石灰石构成 的乃古石林和在湖泊中生成的苏依山石林。同其他喀斯特地形相比,石林喀斯特的石峰更加丰富多彩,形状和颜色也更富于变化。荔波喀斯特的特点是锥形和塔形地 貌,构成了独特、美丽的风景,同样是同类型喀斯特地貌的世界级标准。武隆喀斯特因其巨大的石灰坑、天然桥梁和天然洞穴而列入了世界遗产。"
