Hid­den in the Forests

China Scenic - - Special Report - Photo/ Shui Xiao­jie

The first no­tice­able fea­ture of the Hanzhong Tiankeng clus­ter is that all th­ese sink­holes are hid­den in the dense pri­mary forests. Sim­i­lar karst land­scapes in south­ern prov­inces, such as Yun­nan, Guizhou and so on, are all ac­com­pa­nied by stony moun­tains and peaks with sparse veg­e­ta­tion cover. That is what makes the Hanzhong tiankeng clus­ter stands out.
