The Famous Sanjiang (Three Rivers)  Gorges in the western part of China located in the deep rivers valley of the Hengduan Mountains . In this north-south-run valley ,the magnificent Mt. Gaoligong , the Lujiang and the Hengduan Mountains are blocked and cut deep by the Jinshajiang River , the Lancangjiang River and Lujiang River ,forming a particular (three rivers) gorges of the world . Hutiao (tiger Jumping ) Gorge ,17km in length ,is the most famous one of the three . Generally it is divided into three three sections , namely the upper section , the middle section and the lower section with 18 dangerous shoals along . Head from the mouth of upper gorge to the lower is 210m , height difference from the shoal to the top of the mountain  peaks is 3600m . 

       River bed of Hutiao gorge is narrow with width of water level varying from 30m to 60m .It's name stems from a legend saying that once a giant tiger jumped over the gorge as it was so narrow . Hutiao Gorge is one of the gorges with the deepest water and highest head in world . The grand Lujiang Gorge ,300km in length , is a museum of bridges . There is also majestic view along the Lancangjiang Gorge . There are four grand snow mountains sandwiched by three rivers . Mt. Meili(6740m),Mt. Haba(5395m),Mt Yulong(5596m) and mt. Biluo(4397m). 
Most of the inhabitants in the deep valleys are ethnic people . The Lili , Lu and Dulong Minorities live in the Lujiang Rivers valley , the Naxi , Bai and Pumi minorities in Langcangjiang Rivers Gorge while the Yi, Naxi and Tibetans in the Jingshajiang Rivers gorges . Different minority possesses different folk customs and living habits . Minorities in this area ,as kept so far away from modern civilization , are still living in a rather primitive way .
