"This is the Tibet-Qinghai Plateau, this plateau covers the southwestern part of china. It's a very large rocky land that is surrounded by mountain, one of which is the Himalayas. The climate is cold here because of its high elevation, its average height being 13,000 feet, the air becomes dry and thin and it continues to snow even when it's not winter. This plateau has two rivers in it though, one is the Huang He river and the other is the Yangtze river, even with rivers the land still remains very dry. This place is still home to many animals, some of which are Antelopes, Yak, Wolves, and Wildcats, not the ideal place for living."
"This is the Taklimakan desert is a huge desert, it covers 105,000 square miles wide. Fact, it is one of the most dangerous deserts in the world! This desert has high winds that shift the sand dunes, this can cause horrible, and deadly, sandstorms. These deserts are to dry to have vegetation. There is a legend that two armies and 300 cities is berried 600 ft. beneath the sand dunes. This desert though, is not an ideal place for settlement."
This is the Gobi Desert, it is one of the worlds biggest deserts. This desert covers parts of present day China and Mongolia. The Talklimakan Desert has lots of sand dunes but this desert doesn't. To be exact this desert is very stony, it's mostly made up of tiny pebbels. There are plants here, though, they are tiny and widely spread out. All and all this is not the ideal space for settlement,
"This is the Northeastern Plain, this is located near the east of present day Mongolia. In here there is vegetation, but it is mainly prairie grass. This helped there to be animals such as horses and sheep whom live here. There are two major rivers that run through here, they are the Liao river and the Sungari river. The weather here is very different, they have short summers and dry winters, the southern half being milder, this is because of the rivers. The weather makes the place not very good for settlements."
"This is the North China Plain, it is a flat grassland with cold winters and warm summers. This place is covered in Limestone, so it was given the nick-name "Land of the yellow earth". There is a river that runs through here and it also has yellow limestone silt in it, giving it the name Huang He, which means yellow river. The river is one of the worlds longest and muddiest rivers. This place is a really good place for settlements."
"This is the Chang Jiang Basin, it is a low coastal basin. These basins run along a river called the Chang Jiang river, this one is even longer then the Huang He river, it's name even means long river. This river provided a nice way to transport goods to other places, which leads to a rich delta. This river helpes the surrounding land be very fertile and great for growing crops. These basins had thick vegitation and was warm. Animals also enjoyed this river along side humans. To conclude these basins make for a great settlement."
