This is a landform that features a combination of isolated tower-shaped carbonate rock peaks. Based on the position, they can be divided into plain-type peak forests and valley-type peak forests. According to statistics compiled by Zhu Dehao et al., China’s karst landforms cover 125,000 km 2, of which 12,000 km 2 is in Guangxi Province, and 1,123 km 2 is in the areas around Guilin. Xingping-Fuli is a typical example (Figs. 4 and 5).
