If you like the great outdoors, then you’ll love The Yunnan Great Rivers Expedition - a whitewater expedition through the upper Mekong, Salween and Yangtze rivers. And this documentary has earned a five-star rating from Snag Films viewers!
In a remote corner of Southwest China, three of Asia’s greatest rivers plunge off the Tibetan Plateau through steep canyons in the Himalayas thousands of feet deep. This stunningly beautiful film captures the incredible journey of a whitewater expedition, as it explores the upper Mekong, Salween and Yangtze rivers. More than a wild adventure, the two-month expedition was an ambitious partnership with the Nature Conservancy and the Chinese government to help protect one of the most biodiverse and culturally diverse regions in the world.
From the Mekong River’s hidden Moon Gorge in the Himalayas to the towering canyon walls of the Yangtze River’s Great Bend, an odyssey of exploration and adventure and environmental activism.
