Asihatu Stone Forest

The Asihatu Stone Forest is located at the north mountain northeast of the Keshiketeng Banner of Chifeng. Asihatu granite is a rare stone forest landform. The stone forest was created because the rock mass of the region has rare horizontal proterozoic rock joints and vertical rock joints. Magma, glaciers, thawing ice, wind erosion and landslip due to gravity formed it.

Within an area of 5 sq km, there are odd mountains and stones with different shapes and nearly 1,000 of stelae, rock jungle and ostrich stone. Asihatu Stone Forest Tourist District has both stone forests and grassland. It is a multi-functional geological park combining such functions as scientific study, viewing, sightseeing, popular science education, leisure and holiday making, entertainment and exploration.

With an area of 3 sq km, the Stone Forest Ski Run has new equipment and an advanced design, and offers scenic natural views.
