The canyon has 9 vertical zonations from alpine ice-snow zonation to low river-valley tropical monsoon forest and is rich in biological resources, including two-thirds known higher plants, one-seconds known mammals and four-fifths known insects of Qinghai-Xizang Plateau, and three-fifths known macro-fungi of China, so it absolutely can be ranked as “The Most Species in the World”. Furthermore it creates 2 world records of “The Deepest Canyon in the World” and “The Longest Canyon in the World”, approved by China World Records Association.
Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon is world famous for its height, majesty, depth, humectation, quiet and length.
On both sides of the canyon rise straight up 2 peaks named Namjagbarwa and Jialarbai with the respective altitude of
7782m and 7234m. Wreathed by the mist, the towering peaks rise steeply into the clouds with glaciers hanging down.
Having a bird view of the canyon in the air, among the countless snow peaks and green mountains in the east end of Himalaya Mountain Range, Yarlung Zangbo River firmly cuts a straightly steep canyon, passes through the barrier of high mountains and surrounds Namjagbarwa Mountain, forming vagarious curve as a shape of a horse hoof, then it pours into the Indian Ocean from south, whose magnificent and vagarious scene is unrivaled.
