The Yangtze River

Tiger Leaping Gorge, Lijiang
Yunnan, China

The source of the Yangtze is located in the Tanggula Mountains on the border of Qinghai Province and Tibet Autonomous Region.
The Yangtze originates from a glacier on the south of Mount Gelandong (6,621 m / 21,720 ft), the tallest mountain in the Tanggula range.
The entrance to Tiger Leaping Gorge is about 25km (16 miles) northwest of Lijiang. It is one of the deepest gorges in the world and a popular tourist attraction, particularly for hikers.
