Lufeng Dinosaur Valley

Located 60 kilometers from the provincial capital of Kunming, the Dinosaur Valley provides not only well-preserved dinosaur fossil sites, but also high-tech entertainment and leisure programs.

Entering the park, there are four 28-meter-high marble columns engraved with 240 lifelike dinosaurs. Riding on the park tour bus, visitors reach the Dinosaur Base Camp.

The Dinosaur Base Camp is a high-tech exhibition hall with dinosaur fossils and scientific films about the animal. Its Cinerama hall provides vivid pictures of phenomena like striking aerolites, erupting volcanoes, earthquakes and the extinction of dinosaurs.

More than 20 dinosaur skeleton fossils have been unearthed in the area. Scientists estimate another 400 fossils are still lying buried there.

Visitors are able to have commanding views of more than 60 skeletons displayed in the hall which also provide knowledge about the conservation of fossils and sites.
