GaoliGongshan Tours

Gaoligongshan National Nature Reserve (GNRR) is a protected area comprising the Gaoligong Mountains and the nearby Nu Jiang Reserve in the western Yunnan Province of China, near the international boundary of Burma. It covers a vast stretch of the junction of Baoshan City, Tengchong and Lushui County, towards the west side of Nu (Salween) River.It is a nature reserve of China, under the authority of the Chinese Ministry of Forestry. International organizations have also recognized it. It is a class Protected Area of World Wildlife Fund, and World Biosphere Reserve and a part of World Heritage Site of UNESCO. 

Gaoligongshan National Nature Reserve covers an altitude ranging from Nujiang lowlands (700 m asl) to alpine Gaolingong environment. The reserve runs 9 km from east to west and 135 km from south to north. Out of the total area, 85% is covered by natural forest. The region receives a high average annual rainfall of 100–400 mm. The climate is cool and dry from November to April, and warm and wet between May and October. The uniqueness of the region is that the climatic condition allows a complete transition from temperate to tropical forest that is rare in the world. Wona (3916 m above sea level) is the highest peak in the reserve, and the highest areas are restricted as an inviolate core, where visitors are not allowed. The only exception is along the southern silk road, which is the only access to the highest elevations in the reserve.
