The Salween River is one of the rivers in the Three Parallel Rivers area in South China. Is about 2,800 kilometers long and has a drainage area of 324,000 square kilometers. It flows from the Tibetan plateau to Myanmar and Thailand and is called Nujiang (怒江) in Chinese, Thanlwin in Burmese and Salawin in Thai.
The Salween's source is in the Tanggula Mountains, Tibet Autonomous Region. It flows across the Tibet and Yunnan, where it parallels the Chinese border with northeastern Myanmar. Further downstream, it forms the Myanmar-Thailand boundary for about 120 kilometres (75 mi). In Thailand, it flows across Salween National Park and again enters Myanmar. It finally empties into the Andaman Sea at Moulmein.
