8. Maolan karst forest in Libo, Guizhou

The Maolan National Nature Reserve lies in southeast Libo County, Guizhou Province. The reserve covers an area of 21,100 hectares and the forest coverage rate is up to about 88 percent.

According to statistics, the karst forest is a rare original forest to survive with Central Asian tropical karst features. The forest and karst formations create an ecological system of profound scientific value. It provides a natural science museum of karst formations for scientific research as well as particularly fascinating scenery. Unlike most other karst scenic areas, which are usually barren, the Maolan forest integrates hills, waters, underground caves and green trees, presenting a beautiful picture.
