Sanjiangyuan is the area across the Tibetan Plateau that translates into “The Source of the Three Rivers” in Chinese – the mighty Yangtze, Yellow, and Mekong rivers. The area is one of China’s most vast wildernesses inhabited by snow leopards and Tibetan nomads and their yaks, and is also the site of China’s first official national park announced in 2016. This photo was taken in Qinghai Province of the holy mountain massif of Jiangjiaduode at around 5700m inside Sanjiangyuan.
