The Nujiang-China’s Angry River

The Nu River flows from the Tibetan highlands through western Yunnan and is home to a third of the country’s ethnic groups. The Nu is one of the country’s most remote and fascinating regions, with unrivaled scenery and a diverse ecosystem of 7,000 species of plants and 80 rare or endangered animals and fish. It’s also one of only two major rivers in China yet to be dammed. But that may not last. Cover story for Outpost Magazine
