The 6,300-kilometer Yangtze River is the longest river in China and the third longest in the world, following the Nile in Africa and the Amazon in South America. The drainage area of the river is 1.8 million square kilometers. There are more than 400 million people living along the river.
The source of Yangtze River was confirmed as Tuotuo River in 1979. It descends from the glaciers at the northwestern foot of the snow-capped Geladandong, the main peak of Tanggula Mountains. Twenty-one ice peaks tower 6,000 meters above sea level, forming the Tuotuo River, the origin of the Yangtze. Standing among the forest of ice peaks, people can enjoy the superlative craftsmanship by nature - the crystal ice "sculptures" of towers, bridges, and mushrooms. The best season for traveling is from June through September.
The scenery of Yangtze River source is fantastic, the snow peaks, plateau grassland and blue sky with cotton-like clouds. There is a bridge near the Yangtze River source monument, which is called "the first bridge of Yangtze River".
