Yarlung Zangbo is the soul of the snow and ice mountain. All the lives here enjoy limitless freedom, including the canyon and forest still having original savagery. Between the heaven and earth filled with mysterious spirituality. The towering Namjagbrawa guards every life here. You know that this is just the place you always want to pursue in your heart. Tiger-Jumps Canyon which is located on the upstream of the Yangtze River is one of the deepest canyons in China. Jinsha Jiang River which is located on the upstream of the Yangtze River makes a turn, and to the north, and eventually formed the quite spectacular steep valley.
Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon
The Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon has the honor of the world’s largest canyon. It sends the huge attraction for many people because of its rushing torrent, steep canyons, towering snow-capped mountains, dense forests and rich ecological system. The Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon likes a colorful and mysterious canvas, and you will be intoxicated and unwilling to leave when you place yourself among them.
The water of river round Namjagbrawa Peak at the downstream of the Yarlung Zangbo River, and makes a huge horse-shape turn, so as that a huge canyon formed. With the development of a series of the fault and the uplift of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the river slide correspondingly. Eventually the distance between the peak and valley highly reach from 5,000 to 6,000 meters, and become the rare Peak Valley in the world. The gap between the entrance of fjord having an altitude of 2800 meters and exit having an altitude of 900 meters nearly reaches 2000 meters. The flowing water in this section is very fast. All of these conditions gestate the infinite glamour of the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon.
In 1994, The Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon got the scientific validation by the Chinese scientists. The length of the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon is 504.6 kilometers, and the deepest of the canyon had reached 6,009 meters. The average depth is 2268 meters, so it is the world’s first grand canyon without a doubt. Certainly, the Grand Canyon in America (it was the largest canyon long time ago, the depth of it is 1,880 meters and the length is 400 kilometers) also can’t compare with it.
Tiger-Jumps Canyon
Between the canyons, there are many immense mountains. The Yulongshan Mountain in the east is covered by snow and enveloped by the cloud all throughout the year. There are amount of special stones on the waist of the mountain. The old vines and big trees are very thick and green. The steep peak stands on the river straightly. There is The Haba Snow Mountain in the west. The mountain is very grand and magnificent, and the peak of the west is more than 3000 meters above the surface of the river. The Chinese Three Gorges is spectacular in the world. The gap between the peak and the surface of the river is only 1,500 meters, so you can understand that how deep it is.
The Tiger-Jumps Canyon is very deep and narrow. Placing yourself among the canyons, you only can see a part of the sky, which likes a crack. It is the precipice over the head, and torrent at foot, so you will feel terrible and exciting. The faults of the stone collapse lead to the countless stones fall into the river. In addition to, the steep slope on both sides cause the rocks stand like cranes and the stones weather, and then the large rocks usually collapse and fall into the bottom of the canyon, so eventually many straight stones stand in the river. The gap between the Tiger-Jumps Canyon and the throat of the canyon is 210 meters, 14 meters per kilometer for average. The state of river water has many changes within a short time. It is fulminatory sometimes, and relatively stable another time. All of these constitute the rare landscape in the world.
