THIS IS ANNAMESE MOUNTAINS

Indochina’s principal mountain range

Annamese Mountains, principal mountain range of Indochina and the watershed between the Mekong River and the South China Sea. It extends parallel to the coast in a gentle curve generally northwest-southeast, forming the boundary between Laos and Vietnam. A fairly continuous range for about 700 miles, its rather precipitous eastern slopes leave a narrow coastal plain. Although its highest point, Linh Peak, is only 8,524 feet high, the range has few substantial passes.

square metres

The Annamite Moist Forests lie in the heart of Northern Indochina, which spans across three countries: Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. It belongs to the Indo-Malayan ecoregion category. The forests cover about 94,000 sq. km of ground, so it takes about two weeks of intense walking if someone wanted to travel through the whole forest cover. These moist forests along the Annamite mountain range were included in two ecoregions: the Northern Annamite Rain Forest and the Southern Annamite Montane Rain Forest.
