Shaanxi, cradle of Chinese civilization

Chinaculture.org | Updated: 2020-07-13 13:44

Shaanxi province in Northwest China is one of the major places of origin for ancient Chinese civilization. Since the 11th century BC, 15 dynasties and states in Chinese history had established their capitals in the province.

It has been an important gateway to China since ancient times. As early as the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24), trade routes were opened between the East and West.

Shaanxi is also the cradle of the Chinese revolution, and has been a popular destination for red tourism.

The Qinling Mountains and the Yellow River have created many natural scenic spots in Shaanxi, such as the renowned Huashan Mountain and Hukou Waterfall.
