Nujiang Langcang Gorge alpine conifer and mixed forests

WWF Abstract

When Western explorers visited the Nujiang-Lancang region of China, they called this area of steep ridges and deep valleys the "land of corrugations," and found it mostly inaccessible. Because of its remoteness, the area remains one of the most intact and biologically diverse parts of China. A variety of trees grows above river gorges on crests as high as 10,000 to 16,000 feet (3,000-5,000 m).
