Nujiang, Yunnan: The Nu is one of China's last free flowing rivers but changes are planned. Dam construction has been suspended due to public activism. Its one of the rare examples where civic groups have been successful in slowing the construction of dams in China. The region is environmentally and culturally unique. In recognition of that Unesco designated it a World Heritage Site.  During Chinese New Year ( February) the Tibetan, Drung, Nu, Dai,Lisu and Han people all celebrate in their own unique way.  For now the Nujiang region is a great place to see China's natural and cultural wealth.
