South China Karst Landform Added to World Heritage List

The South China karst landforms were inscribed on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage list in 2007, for being “one of the world’s most spectacular examples of humid tropical to subtropical karst landscapes.” As of June 23, 2014, an extension of the South China karst, called Shibing’s karst landform, located in the Guizhou province of China, was added to the UNESCO list. The inscribed site now includes multiple landforms spread out over multiple provinces throughout China and covering hundreds of acres. Significant karst landform types, from tower karst to pinnacle karst formations, and other incredible natural landforms, such as gorges, cave systems and natural bridges, occur in the area. Shibing’s karst landform covers an area including Yuntai Mountain. It is the third World Heritage natural site in Guizhou. Click here for the UNESCO listing.
