Nujiang River in Tibet

The Nujiang River has its origin on the southern side of the Tanggula Mountain Range on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It runs through Tibet and Yunnan in China, and then leaves the country at Dehong Dai and Jingpo Ethnic Minorities Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province. Here it enters Myanmar and gains another name, Salween, which at last empties into the Andaman Sea of the Indian Ocean. The Nujiang River stretches 2,816 kilometers and covers 324,000 square kilometers.
