Between the year 2005 and 2007, the authors monitored the habitat of golden monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) with the geography information system, remote sensing and global position system. We record the transect, altitude, forest canopy cover, the height of the tree, slope. Vanderloeg and Scavia selective index was used to evaluate the golden monkey's selection for varied habitat parameter. Through the analysis, we found that golden monkey prefer to select the mountains between 2 000–2 800m altitude. They usually showed strong habitat preference for the high arbor of slope (> 25°), Forest canopy > 80%, tree crown coverage > 50%. They usually like to staying at high forest density, area of the middle slope.
