More than1,500 meters high on average and over 800 kilometers long, the Mountains are like a gigantic wall that blocks the air flow between North and South, and so serves as a natural dividing line. The Qinling Mountains are homes to the greatest diversity of mountain wildlife anywhere found in China. 642 species are living here. Many of them are endangered species that can only found in China. The giant pandas lives on the southern slopes of the mountains while the golden monkeys live on the other side of the mountains.
