Chinese terrain from west to east largely followed three steps. About 67 percent of the land area are mountains,plateaus and hills,and about 33 percent of the land area are basins and plains. Mountains are mostly in the west-east direction or in the southeast-northeast direction. Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in the west is known as “the roof of the world”with an average altitude of more than 4000 meters. The top of Mount Everest is the most inaccessible place in the world. The major rivers,such as Yangtze River,Yellow River and Pearl River,originate in the western plateaus and mountains,and along the sloping terrain empty into the sea. The Yangtze River is the longest river in China. The total length is of 6500 kilometers which is only inferior to the Amazon in South America and the Nile in Africa. It flows through 11 provinces,municipalities and autonomous regions. The Yellow River flows through 9 provinces. The Yangtze River and the Yellow River are known as “the mother river”of Chinese nation. Thanks!=)
