Yunnan is a boarder province of China. It contains more variety than any other province, with towering, icy mountains adjoining Tibet and Burma in the northwest and west and lush tropical jungles bordering Laos and Vietnam in the south where wild elephants still roam. Yunnan is a part of the Yunnan-Guizhou plateau where the average elevation is 2,000 meters above sea level. From north to south, the height gradually drops from 6,700 meters at the peak of Meili Snow Mountain to 76 meters in the south close to Vietnam.
