The middle stream of the Yarlung Zangbo River is under the threat of becoming deserts

  In the early summer of 1953, a mud-rock flow occurred suddenly in Guxiang ditch. The front of the mud-rock flow was as high as dozens of meters. It looked like a giant black dragon and it flew down with large amount of stone blocks, mud, and trees. 

The middle stream of the Yarlung Zangbo River is under the threat of becoming deserts

Rocks with a diameter of 10 to 20 meters floated on the top of the mud-rock flow. After it passed a valley, it rushed out of the mountain pass and destroyed everything within its range, including villages, forests and temples outside of the pass; after it flew over the mountain pass, the mud and stones covered the Sichuan-Tibet highway and formed a piled fan with a width of 4 kilometers on the road. The fan dammed the river course of Parlung Zangbo River and formed a dammed lake. Thereafter, mud-rock flows happened frequently and they made troubles to the Sichuan-Tibet highway each year. Mud-rock flow makes it even difficult to travel there.
