Sometimes I like to tag in the UNESCO tag to receive some new UNESCO sites. I receive not as many unesco site via the officials as I thought. This time Dengbin from China tagged me back and send me this great card from the unesco site three parallel rivers of Yunnan Protected Areas. This is one of the three rivers.
Consisting of eight geographical clusters of protected areas within the boundaries of the Three Parallel Rivers National Park, in the mountainous north-west of Yunnan Province, the 1.7 million hectare site features sections of the upper reaches of three of the great rivers of Asia: the Yangtze (Jinsha), Mekong and Salween run roughly parallel, north to south, through steep gorges which, in places, are 3,000 m deep and are bordered by glaciated peaks more than 6,000 m high. The site is an epicentre of Chinese biodiversity. It is also one of the richest temperate regions of the world in terms of biodiversity.
