The Yun Range (Chinese: 雲嶺; pinyin: Yún Lǐng; literally: "Cloudy Peaks") are a mountain range running north-south in Yunnan province. They were formerly romanized as the Yun Ling and as the Yun-ling Mountains. The Yun Range is a significant component of the greater Hengduan Mountains. The province of Yunnan, meaning "south of cloud [mountains]", was named after this range.

The Yunling Mountains Nature Reserve in Lanping County in Nujiang Prefecture is part of the Three Parallel Rivers of Yunnan Protected Areas[1] and a habitat for the endangered black snub-nosed monkey.
