Many of the Lisu people in the Nu (Salween) River Gorge live high up on the mountain slopes, as seen here. They mainly cultivate corn and rice, which is grown in terraces. The mighty Nu River flows down in the gorge below, though it is not visible from this perspective. Leaving Tibet, the river flows over 400 km through western Yunnan, crosses Myanmar, and empties out into the Andaman Sea.

Nice and green out there!
I always find mountains impressive. It makes you feel so small!

I live this fresh green landscape panorama with the view in the depth, TFS.

Beautiful pic. Good depth and frame. Like your placement of the house. Atmosphere's very calm and nice especialyl when there aren't many people.

So beautiful. I am not sure if it can be any better than this one?

Incredible view, I love finally getting to see the place I've always dreamt about! Excellent sharpness and colours, the green fading to blue. But the sky is overexposed in a way that it impairs the rest of the photo. I did a WS, hope you won't miss the sky too much.
Thank you so much for sharing!
