Golden-Sanded River (Jinsha River) 金沙江

Jīnshājiāng (Also known as Gold Dust River)
Tiger Leaping Gorge, Lijiang
Yunnan, China

It’s the upper stretches of the Yangtze River and flows through the provinces of Qinghai, Sichuan, and Yunnan in western China.
The Yangtze River is the longest river in China and Asia. It originates from a glacier on the south of Mount Gelandong (6,621 m / 21,720 ft), the tallest mountain in the Tanggula range.
The Yangtze River stretches 6,300 kilometers (3,917 miles) and flows from the world's highest and largest plateau, the Tibetan Plateau, to the world's deepest and largest ocean, the Pacific.
