10 Beautiful Chinese Landscape Photographs

China is an ancient civilization extending over a large area in East Asia. China has the longest continuous history of any country in the world. Prior to the 19th century, it possessed one of the most advanced societies and economies in the world but missed the industrial revolution and began to decline. China was the source of many major inventions. It has one of the world’s oldest written languages.

According to Wikipedia, China ranges from mostly plateaus and mountains in the west to lower lands in the east. In the east, along the shores of the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea there are extensive and densely populated alluvial plains. On the edges of the Inner Mongolian plateau in the north, there are grasslands. Southern China is dominated by hills and low mountain ranges. In the central-east are the deltas of China’s two major rivers, the Huang He and Yangtze River.

I love to see beautiful landscapes. I have never visited China but if you have been to any of these locations please tell my readers about your experience. Click on the images for a larger photograph or follow the photo credit links.

  1. Nice pics of China, I like landscapes myself. I think you missed a big one though. Check out “Detian Falls” on an image search. I think you’ll see what I mean.

  2. wow beautiful. really good job

  3. Beautiful… the photos looks breathtaking.

  4. China is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, geographically. From mountains to oceans, plains to lakes, hills to rivers – it has it all. Pure beauty. Most of it untouched by the hand of man.

    For you to add Guangzhou to that list shows just how little you understand of life, nature and especially China. Go to bed.

  5. woow its beatiful gooood job !!:D
