The Nujiang valley is known as well as the "Grand Canyon of the East". This because Nujiang valley is both deep and long. The gorge stretches from its narrowest point, only 20 to 30 meters, to the widest point, about 100 meters. The mountains are steep and feature odd shapes, some resembling knife's edge, a squatting lion or a galloping horse. Clouds and fogs linger between the mountains while swift torrents of the Nujiang River echo through the gorge. The mountain slopes are covered with trees and bushes, and on top of the mountains there are tall trees like guardians.

Over a dozen ethnic minorities live along the Nujiang River region, including the Lisu, Nu and Drung people. The ethnic people there are simple, honest and hospitable. They are good at singing and dancing. The Nujiang River Gorge still has preserved cultural traditions, making it an ideal place to explore.
