Dulongjiang Overview

Dulongjiang, also Dulong River , originates from Tibet, flowing through the northwest corner of Yunnan then into Burma. Its Yunnan section is about 80km long, sandwiched by Mt. Dandanglika on the west and Mt. Gaoligong on the east. Amongst the lofty mountains bordering Tibet and Yunnan is the Dulong River Vallley, at the west slope of the north part of the Gaoligong Shan.


The Dulongjiang Valley is where the 3 ethnic minorities - Dulong(Drung), Nu, Lisu, inhabit for ages. It lures adventurous travelers with its isolated natural beauty, original ethnic cultures and a mystical facial tattoo tradition. A dirt road connects the valley to the nearest town, Gongshan.


To outsiders, the valley is often known as "the Valley of Death". Due to the heavy snowfall,transport to the valley is blocked for more than six months each year.It's definitely an exciting adventure to trek into this isolated and mysterious valley. The closest Tibetan village is more than three days walk with almost no services of any kind. The destination doesn't offer much more comfort than the trial.
