South China Karst, made up of the karst landscapes in Yunnan province, Guizhou province and Chongqing city, is one of the world's most spectacular examples of humid tropical to subtropical karst landscapes. 

It is also noted for the rich biodiversity found across the 176,228 hectares.

Three sites of the karst were first inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List as a natural property in 2007. In 2014, another three were added to the list.
