Mountain WuYi and The Nine-curve Stream

The essence of Mount WuYi is the Nine-Curve Stream,which has nice curves and is about 7.5 km long.The stream is green and crystal clear and winds its way among the mountains.If you take a bamboo raft to visit the Nine-curve Stream,you can enjoy the beautiful scenery on both banks.

The Tarim Basin

The Tarim Basin encircled by the Tianshan Mountains,Kunlun Mountains,Altyn Tagh Mountains and the Pamirs. With a total area of 530,000 km2, is the largest inland basin in the world.Because of the mountain barriers , the weather there is extremely dry. It has a typical geomorphology of dry wind erosion and wind deposit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarim_Basin

The periphery of the Basin is Gobi land made up of stone fragments. The Gobi land is very permeable . In summer the melted ice and snow from the high mountains flow down and permeates the ground so that the surface of the Gobi is always dry.

Within the Gobi land,there are intermittent oasis forming a strip-like belt.Each oasis is rich in grass and water flowing through a network of channels and farmland,with many trees to provide shelter.This has helped the local economy to develop and the people of the basin mostly live here.

The Tarim Basin-2

The Taklamakan Desert located in the Tarim Basin ,is about 1,000 km long from east to west and about 400 km wide from south to north.It has an area of about 330,000 km2 and is the largest desert in China.

Various dunes can be found in the Taklamakan Desert , some are like new moon,some like waves. The average height is more than 100 m and some can be 200 or 300 m high.

The desert area is very dry,with no rain at all throughout a year, making conditions for life extremely difficult.

Rich oil deposits are buried under the Tarim Basin so that people call it an ''oil sea''. In recent years
more and more scientists and explorers have traveled there for reseach.

The Yangze River-2

The upper reaches of the Yangtze feature a big vertical drop,with torrents and many gorges flanked by towering mountains ,such as the Tiger-Leaping Gorge, Three Gorges ,and so on.

The Tiger-Leaping Gorge located in LiJiang Naxi Autonmous County of YunNan Province,the Tiger-Leaping Gorge is about 16 km long. The mountains on both banks of the gorge rise over 3,000 m above the river and the drop of the roaring river reaches 200 m. At its narrowest point ,the gorge is only 30 m wide .It is said that there was once a huge tiger that leaped over it,hence the name ''Tiger Leaping Gorge''.

The Yellow River-2

There are many gorges on its upper regions,such as LongYang Gorge,have an abundance of water resources and large scale hydroelectric power stations have been built.

The middle regions of the Yellow River flow through the Loess Plateau,where there is a serious problem of soil erosion . This part of the rivers contain large amount of sand,forming a powerful ''mud river''.

The drainage area of the lower regions of the Yellow River cover the North China Plain,where the river broadens,the flow slows down and the mud and sand deposits from a ''hanging river'',where the riverbed is actually higher than the surrounding land beyong the built up banks.

雅鲁藏布江 Yarlung Zangbo River

The Yarlung Zangbo River is one of the highest rivers in China,originating from the northern peaks of Himalayas. The part flowing through Chinese territory is altogether 2,057 km long.

The upper reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo River lie in a frigid zone.Here are broad river valleys,most of which are flat and shallow.The current here is slow and there are many lakes and swamps.The large area of aboriginal grassland is a paradise for wild animals,such as the Tibetan antelope .blue sheep ,wild donkeys and wild yaks.

The middle reaches of the river alternate between narrow and broad river valleys that are distributed like a string of beads.
