Menglian Giant Banyan Tree is growing in Damannuo Village, Fuyan Township of Menglian County, Pu’er Municipality. This tree is totally 48 meters high with its canopy stretching 4,330 square meters.

Its trunks have a diameter of 35 meters, wide enough for 68 adult arm-spans to encircle. The major "tunnel” among the trunks is also spacious enough for two cars to pass through side by side. The huge banyan tree, rare and robust of its kind, is very peculiar and has been called “the No. 1 Tree in the world”.
