Storyboard Text

  • The large Tibet-Qinghai Plateau is our first stop. It is so large it almost covers China.  The elevation of this massive rock is 13,500 feet! The plateau is very rocky, and dry. the two veggitations that grow here are scrubs and grasses. The mountains are beyond cold, having  it snow even in the summer. Two of Chinas's    rivers start at the plateau, the Yellow River and the Chang Jiang.  Over all people believe the Tibet-Qinghai place to live because of the drieness.

  • Our next stop is the Taklimakan Desert. This desert covers 105,000sq miles and is said to be one of the most dangerous. In fact Taklimakan means "once you go in, you will not come out". Spooky huh?! Many sandstorms occur, and there is not much veggitation that grows obviously, only trees, weeds and bushes along rivers.

  • We are now in the Gobi Desert which is one of the worlds largest deserts covering over 500.000sq miles! There are very little dunes here, it is very stony. Plants are scarce to find here. In the summer, the tempature can reach up to 100 degrees. in winter the temp can go as low as 15 degrees.

  • Our fourth stop is the Northeastern Plain. The main vegitation is parerrie grass. Many rivers pass through like the Liao and the Sungari. The Liao River is rather shallow, so only small boats can pass through, unlike the Sungary River, it is much deeper and much larger boats can go by. The summer is short and warm, and winters are dry and very cold, so people do not grow crops here.

  • Here is the North China Plain, one of the two major regions in China. Summers are warm and winters are cold, as most places. From the Gobi Desert comes limestone silt that is blown here by the wind, which is why this region is sometimes called the "Land of the Yellow Earth".  One of the worlds longest river The Huang He flows through here, which makess it a great place to grow crops. But when this river floods, it is deadly.

  • Our last stop is the Chang Jiang Basins, that are very wet and low areas of land. The climate is rather warm her year round.  The Chang Jiang is even longer than the Huang He river, you would know because 'Chang Jiang' means long river.  The depositrs of the river make the and very rich and fertile. The basins were good for growing rice because of its warmth and wetness.
