Southeastern Tibet Series | Episode 4: The Secret Wonderland

The Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is the largest and deepest canyon in the world with a length of more than 504 kilometers. The canyon is as deep as a 2,000-story building at its deepest point.

In the Southeastern Tibet Series, we focus on the magnificent southeastern Tibet. Unlike the common Tibet we know, the southeastern area has glaciers, lakes, snow mountains, meadow, forest and wetland. The water vapor and heat from the Indian Ocean have passed through canyons until they reach the inner land of Tibet, making the southeastern part a place of warmth and greenery. Tibetan rhesus macaque, black-necked cranes together with other incredible animals and plants, are living harmoniously on the land of southeastern Tibet.
