Photographer's Note

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.
