Celebration at source of one of the world's greatest rivers in Qinghai province is cultural extravaganza

The Lancang/Mekong International Video/Photography Week 2022 opened in Zadoi county in Qinghai province on Aug 9. As part of the core area of the Three-River-Source National Park, Zadoi is home to the source of the Lancang/Mekong. The river, which is known as the Lancang in China and as the Mekong in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world, flows from China through Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, en route to the South China Sea.

The video/photography week is part of a series of cultural activities focused on the source of the great river and features photo sessions based on different themes, such as folk culture, astrophotography, wildlife and rafting. An outdoor song and dance gala show was held to celebrate the event.
