(The Stone Forest is a spectacular scenic karst limestone area and centre of tourism at Shilin, Stone Forest county, Yunnan province, south west China.  There is a Sani - part of the Yi minority - village at the edge of the lake in the Stone Forest.)

These few photos were taken in October 2000 when visiting the Stone Forest, Shilin, Stone Forest county, Yunnan province.  There is a Sani (part of the Yi minority) village which is right at the edge of the lake which forms part of the Stone Forest tourist area.  The Sani work within the area and are active traders at textile stalls around the lake.  The traders are tough bargainers - but with humour.
