Breathtaking aerial scenery of Yellow River source in NW China

On October 10, water from the Yellow River's source glowed under the azure autumn sky in Madoi County, Golog Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in northwest China's Qinghai Province.

The meaning of Madoi in the local language is "the source of Yellow River," and the area is the upper stream of the river. It is considered one of the highest Chinese counties by average elevation.
