  • Why Us
Nujiang - literally "angry river" in Chinese - carries raging undercurrents that roar over rocks and rush through steep mountain valleys. It is one of the rivers within the Three River Natural Reserve (listed as a world heritage site). It flows into Myanmar and joins the Salween River. From its headwaters on the southern slope of Tanggula Mountain on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the Nujiang River runs through one of China's most remote areas, where it has carved canyons through the rugged mountain ranges east of the Himalayas. One can witness dramatic changes of ecosystem. Monsoon and subtropical forests in the south region are gradually replaced by shurblands and dry warm valleys in the north.

The Nujiang River is one of the two rivers in the country that have never been dammed. According to development plans for the river, however, some dams are scheduled to be built for power generation.

The region is inhabited mainly by the ethnic minorities of Bai, Lisu, Nu and Tibetans. The Hans are prominent in the towns.

* Enjoy Nujiang River (part of a World Heritage Site) and its most beautiful part of the gorge - Bingzhongluo

* Meet Nu and Lisu people, and Tibetans

Best time to visit

October - April of the next year, but February is the idealest, when the gorge is dotted with rape seeds and ceiba flowers.
