Listing Detail Tabs

The full account of an 18 month
search in the 1930's in South
Eastern Tibet for the source of
the Salween. The Salween (Nu)
flows up to 1,800 miles from the
Tibetan plateau via southwestern
Yunnan Province into Thailand and
Myanmar, then into the Salween delta.
The river supports an estimated 25
percent of plant and animal species,
many of which do not exist anywhere
else in the world. The people who
live on the Salween are still relatively
isolated from the rest of the world.
The river is only navigable up to 56
miles from the mouth, and only in
the rainy season.
