The Lancang River originates from the northeastern part of Tanggula Mountain in Qinghai Province, China, flows through Tibet and Yunnan, and runs through the Hengduan Mountains. It is the most typical north-south river in the world.

The watersheds it passes through include almost all natural landscapes and climate types in the world except the Gobi and desert.

The basin area is a multi-ethnic agglomeration area, and the customs, customs, and lifestyles of each ethnic group are integrated with the local natural environment.
