Anhui has a variety of landscapes. China’s two important rivers, the Yangtze River and the Huaihe River, flow eastward across the south and the north of the province respectively, dividing its area into three natural regions: the region to the north of the Huaihe River is a vast plain with loamy soil; the region between the Huaihe River and the Yangtze River is a hilly terrain with rivers stretching crisscross and terraces strewing at random; the region to the south of the Yangtze River is a mountainous area with Huangshan (or the Yellow Mountains) and Mt. Jiuhua, as the representatives for their splendid scenery.
Famous mountains in Anhui are Mt. Dabie, Mt. Huangshan, Mt. Jiuhua, and Mt. Tianzhu. Huangshan, with Lotus Flower Peak as its highest point, rises to a height of 1,864 meters (6,100 feet) above mean sea level. The Yangtze River flows 416 kilometers across the south of Anhui; the Huaihe River flows 430 kilometers across the north of the province; the Xin’an River, the headwaters of the Qiantang River, flows 240 kilometers across the south of Anhui. The province also has a number of lakes along the tributaries of the Yangtze River; some are quite large, including Chao Lake, Longgan Lake and Nanyi Lake. With a total area of 800 square kilometers, Chaohu is one of the five greatest freshwater lakes in China.

Anhui, the name of the province, is a portmanteau word combining the first characters of Anqing and Huizhou. Because there was an ancient state named “Wan” during the Spring and Autumn Period (722-481 BC) and a mountain called “Wanshan” in the province, Anhui is called “Wan” for short.
