The Changjiang (Yangtze) River descends from the glaciers at the northwestern foot of the snow-capped Geladandong, the main peak of Tanggula Mountains.

Twenty-one ice peaks tower 6,000 meters above sea level, forming the Tuotuo River, the origin of the Yangtze. The Tuotuo River was 346.3 km long. The discharge of the Tuotuo River is 75.10 m3/ sec. The drainage area of the Dam River is 30,715.7 km2, the Tuotuo River is 16,691.0 km2.

Standing among the forest of ice peaks, people can enjoy the superlative craftsmanship by nature - the crystal ice "sculptures" of towers, bridges, and mushrooms. The best season for traveling is from June through September.
