The mountain range that covers Myanmar and Laos extends more than 1,300 kilometers (750 miles) in length and has a total of 2,924,500 hectares (5,931,600 acres).
It is the second-largest mountain range after the Yangtze River Valley in China.
This range is also home to the world’s largest herd of elephants.
In a recent survey conducted by the United Nations, the Yangbai Yangtse River Basin covered an area larger than the entire state of New Jersey.
The Myanmar National Parks Department said the Yangbei Range was designated as a World Heritage Site in 2014.
The National Parks Administration (NPA) was also responsible for the conservation and management of the area, the agency said in a statement.
A survey by the National Geographic Society revealed that the Yangmul River Basin covers about 1,600 square kilometers (600 square miles) of land.
