Located in the upstream of the Yellow River, Gansu Province is a significant provincial-level administrative region in the People’s Republic of China. It was once an important hub of the Silk Road. Lanzhou is Gansu’s provincial capital.
Gansu has plenteous mineral resources, a dry climate, and ample thermal and wind energy. Adjacent to Mongolia, and tucked between the Loess Plateau of central China, Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and Inner Mongolian Plateau, Gansu attracts numerous domestic and foreign tourists every year by virtue of its special geographic location, long humanistic folk customs and history that go beyond the Great Wall, and tourism resources.
