  雅鲁藏布江 Yarlung Zangbo River

  雅鲁藏布江是中国最高的大河之一,发源于喜马拉雅山北麓,在中国境内长2,057千米。

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

  雅鲁藏布江的上游是高寒地带。这里河谷开阔,大部分是平浅谷地,水流缓慢,多湖塘沼泽。原始的大面积草场是天然的动物乐园,生活?藏羚羊、岩羊、野驴、野牦牛等许多野生动物。

  中游地带,河谷宽窄相间,一放一束,呈串珠状分布。

  下游地区,江水绕过喜马拉雅山东段的高山,折向南流,形成了世界上最大的峡谷——雅鲁藏布大峡谷。它呈马蹄形,以雄伟、险峻和奇特闻名于世。

  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.

  In the lower reaches, the river rounds a high mountain in the eastern part of the Himalayas and turns south, forming the largest canyon in the world-the Yarlung Zangbo Canyon. It is in the shape of a horse's hoof and has become world famous for its majesty, steepness and peculiar charm.
