Trip Description

China's plan to build eight large dams on the upper reaches of the Mekong in Yunnan Provine, which is known as "Lancang" in China, will change the river's natural flood-drought cycle and block the transportation of sediment. These environmental changes will affect the livelihoods of millions of people living downstream in Burmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Despite these serious potential impacts, construction of these dams has proceeded without consultation with China's downstream neighbours, and without any real assessment of the likely impacts to the river and its people. more in Lancang-Mekong a River of Controvercy. The Upper Mekong Navigation Improvement Project, funded by the Chinese government, is part of a grand scheme to allow large ships to freely navigate the Mekong between China and Laos. The first stage of the project would destroy 11 major rapids and 10 reefs along the Mekong from China-Burma border to Ban Houayxai in Laos. To date, 20 of these rapids and reefs have already been blasted, with only one along the Thai-Lao border remaining. The second and third stages would involve further canalization of the river.
