The Nujiang River

On the west side of the world geographical wonder-the longitudinal gorges in the west of Yunnan, the roaring Nujiang River is surging ahead between the Gaoligongshan Mountains and the Biluo Snow Mountains, thus forming the precipitous and lofty Nujiang Gorge, also called "The Oriental Grand Gorge". The Nujiang River rises in the south of the Tanggula Mountains and is 3,200 kilometers in length of which 2, 013 kilometers is in China. It is called the Salween River when running into Myanmar.

Living in the grand Nujiang Gorge are the people of the Lisu, Nu, Bai, Jingpo and Dulong nationalities. Their unique ways of life together with the extraordinary landforms form the magnificent scenery of the grand gorge.
