The Tsangpo Gorge

The Tsangpo Gorge is the canyon where the Yarlung Tsangpo coming from the Tibetan Plateau cuts through the ridge of the Himalaya Mountains. The altitude difference from the bottom of the valley to the peaks of the adjacent mountains (the Namcha Barwa on the left) is more than 5000m at a distance of just about 20km.

I photographed the Tsangpo Gorge in 1993 from the ground. This perspective is awesome.
