The northwestern flank of the massif forms one side of the Tiger Leaping Gorge (Hutiao Xia, 虎跳峡), which has a popular trekking route on the other side. In this gorge, the Jinsha (upper Yangtze ) River descends dramatically between Jade Dragon and Haba Snow Mountain . The Yulong Mountains lie to the south of the Yun Range and are part of Southwest China 's greater Hengduan Mountains . [5]
