The Bayan Har mountains (Mongolian: Bayan Har Uul, Chinese: 巴颜喀拉山脉; pinyin: Bāyánkālā shānmài) are a mountain range in south-central part of Qinghai Province and the northwestern part of Sichuan Province in the People's Republic of China. It can be viewed as one of the branches of the Kunlun Mountains. It separates the drainage areas of the Yellow River and the Yangtze rivers; the source of the Yellow River is in the basin of Yueguzonglie, which is located in the northern part of the range.[1]
