The majestic beauty of the snow mountains in the horizon, together with a flowery scene at the foothill creates a unique spring landscape here. The Yarlung Zangbo River Grand Canyon averages 5,000 meters in depth, making it the deepest in the world, followed by the Grand Canyon in the USA and the Colia Grand Canyon in Peru.[Photo/Xinhua]

The Yarlung Zangbo River Grand Canyon

The Yarlung Zangbo River Grand Canyon is the deepest canyon in the world. With a total length of about 500 kilometers, its altitude spans from 7,782 meters at Namchak Barwa, the highest peak of the eastern Himalayas, to 550 meters around the Yarlung Zangbo River Valley in Metog county.

One unique feature of the spring sight here is that visitors can enjoy both the peach blossoms and the snow-capped mountains at the same time. The water Peach Blossom Fair is also an attraction in the area.
