The Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve, in Southwest China's Yunnan Province, is situated on the central part of the Hengduan Mountains, on the slope of the section between the Baima Snow Mountain, the major peak in the north of the Yunling Ranges, and Renzhi Snow Mountain. It is between Deqen County of the Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture and Markam County in the Tibet Autonomous Region. The Yunling Ranges are the source of the Lancang and Jinsha rivers. Above 4,000 metres, the mountains are covered in snow all year round. A great number of well-preserved primitive forests can also be found here. Highland oak birch, Yunnan pine, George's fir, snow-white rhododendron, and vitchleaf sophora are the main plants in the reserve. There are 47 species of animals in the reserve. The most famous is the snub-nosed monkey or the Yunnan golden monkey, which lives in the sub-high mountain dark pine coniferous tree forests. Among all the monkeys, the snub-nosed monkeys are the one species living on the highest altitudes between 3,200 and 4,000 meters.
