Standing in the sub-tropical rainforest near the Laodaonong village of Tongbi Pass in Yingjiang County, Dehong Prefecture, 76 km to the town, the so-called King of Banyan tree is 40 m tall, with more than 168 new trunks grown from dropping aerial roots.

Each year, more than ten aerial roots are still increased. The tree crown covers an area of 9.2 mus. It looks like a grove and is called “one tree makes a forest”.

According to the experts, this tree is over 300-year-old and is the biggest and greatest banyan in China so far.
