Yarlung Tsangpo arid steppe

WWF Abstract

If you were to cross the Tibetan Plateau, you'd find that most of the region is cold, arid, and treeless. You'd find some relief, though, in the Yarlung Tsangpo (Zambo or Zangpo) River valley, where days are warmer and sunnier than in other parts of the plateau. The Yarlung Tsangpo Arid Steppe ecoregion contains the greatest concentration of Tibet's human population. It's also the home of gazelles, pheasants, and other wild creatures.
