About the Mekong

Mekong River

Mekong River

The Mekong River is one of the world’s 10th rivers in its river length and has great influences upon nature and societies of the Indo-china Peninsula. The name “MEKONG” originates in Thai language, Mae Nam Khong. The Mekong River is the heart and soul of mainland Southeast Asia, which runs 4,800 kilometers from its headwaters on the Tibetan Plateau through Yunnan Province of China, Burma, Thailand, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Vietnam. The source of the Mekong River is in Tibet Mountains and is called Dza Chu River (River of Rock). After running through very narrow valley paralling Yangz Jiang and Salween River, the Mekong reaches to Yung-Nan Province of China and is called Lancang Jiang (Turbulent River). Via Golden Triangle, the crossing of Burma, Thailand, and Laos border, the Mekong flow into Vientiane Plain. The term, Lower Mekong means downstream segment from the point. There are some notorious rapids for French navigation plan in colonial period before the Mekong get to Cambodia, and the last segment is the Mekong Delta in Viet Nam, which distributes grate influences to agriculture, especially paddy fields there. According to a sketch on the right, we can see this long river with some segments hereinafter.

Over 60 million people depend on the Mekong and its tributaries for food, water, transport and many other aspects of their daily lives. Its annual flood drought cycles are essential for the sustainable production of rice and vegetables on the floodplains and along the riverbanks during the dry season. Known as the Mother of waters, the river supports one of the world’s most diverse fisheries, second only to the Amazon.
The Mekong of Vietnam is one of the two main rice bowls of the country. Dominated by Large lowland Stretching from Cambodia to Sai Gon, the surrounding lands are comprised of low lying rice paddies and the rivers are bordered by dense mangroves and palms. The tributaries of the hectic Mekong River highway provide a comprehensive network of canals and channels.
