The Yellow Serpent Border Cliffs was a long stretch of sheer rock that served as a natural boundary between part of the eastern Hordelands and western Shou Lung, specifically the provinces of Mai Yuan and Ch'ing Tung.[1][2]


The cliffs ran for hundreds of miles from the northernmost region of the Yehimal mountains near Nas Trango Shan to the peak of Shan Trango in the south.[1][2]


Much of the cliff face was a sheer drop, including a dizzying 2,000 ft. plunge at the Yellow Thunder Falls.[1]
