Hoh Xil's recent listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site bodes well for the source of the Yangtze, Yellow and Lancang rivers, which was established as China's first national park to pilot environmental-protection reform. Liu Xiangrui reports in Hoh Xil, Qinghai.

The inclusion of Hoh Xil, which is on the world's largest and highest plateau, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site marks a new beginning for the area's conservation, says Buzhou, director of the Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve administration.

"We must improve our ideas and methods to meet the higher standards set by the World Heritage Convention," Buzhou says.

Hoh Xil, which is located on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in the northwestern part of Qinghai province, is famous for its natural beauty and biodiversity.
