Gulahama Oasis Rivers, including Qiaha River, Buzang River, etc., maintain the existence of the Gulahama Oasis. The main stream lengths of the Qiaha River and the Buzang River are 142.70 km and 135.33 km (Lambert). The mountainous part of the Gulahama Oasis Rivers’ Catchment is between 35°54′09″N and 36°36′17″N, 80°15′57″E and 81°25′25″E, and located in Cele County of Hotan Administrative Region, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China. The area of the mountainous catchment is 3781.22 km² (Albers), and the perimeter is 415.72 km. The elevation in the mountainous catchment was classified into eleven types. The dataset is consisted of (1) Gulahama Oasis Rivers; (2) boundary data of the mountainous catchment; (3) elevation classification data of the mountainous catchment. The dataset is archived in .kmz, .shp and .tif data formats, and consists of 50 data files with data size of 34.4 MB (compressed to 4 files with 22.5 MB).
