Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon, in the lower reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo River, is the world deepest and narrowest canyon with the length of 504.9 kilometer. It stretches from Mainling County to Metog County with the average depth of 2800 meter. Glaciers, precipices, steep slopes, mud-rock flows and billowy rivers are interlacing in the whole canyon area, causing great danger.
The Yarlung Zangbo River turns south suddenly in Mainling County and cuts the Himalayas Mountain into two sections. Then the river runs through a narrow passage between two high peaks of Namjagbarwa and Jialabailei, forming the great canyon.
The climatic zones of the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon area is distributed vertically. It determined the vertical distribution of diversified vegetation and various wild animals. Nearly 5,000 species of vegetation have been found here. Embracing all representative animals of the south and north as well the Grand Canyon has won the reputation as Natural arboretum, natural zoo, Plant Gene Bank and so on.
