The Yalong Canyon [雅砻江]

Yalong2, originally uploaded by mutikonka.

This is how the botanist Joseph Rock described this area in 1929:

Through Mile High Cliffs The Yalung River Winds Its Tortuous Way

In the course of unnumbered centuries this great stream in western China has cut a gorge through thousands of feet of earth and rock. Its waters finally mingle of those of the Yangtze to complete their journey to the sea. This section of the Yalung gorge is to the northwest of Mutirong, in Muli territory.
