A Perfect Place in Paradise, 3000 meters elevation Balagezong Grand Canyon, Shangri-La, Yunnan, China
Balagezong Great Canyon is an amazing masterpiece of the Nature. From the main peak with an elevation of 5,545 meters to the river valley with an elevation of 3,345 meters, the height difference of the ridge valley is a high as 3,545 meters. The most obvious feature of the canyon is that “canyon inside canyon, canyon on canyon, crisscrossing, stretch of canyons”. On the both side of the canyon are mostly cliffs from 1,000 to 2,000 m. The grotesquely-shaped rock stratum texture and geological folds made up a huge rock painting. In the lush primeval forest, different kinds of exotic flowers and rare herbs as well as strange vines and trees bring out the best in each other. Fields of cactus and palms, boundless azaleas sea, large areas of vegetation, clear and beautiful river winds its way and stir up spindrift, steep cliffs and plunging waterfall... All these gorgeous sceneries seem to be the wonderfulness of the Nature.
