Northeast China Plain


Northeast China Plain

The Northeast China Plain (simplified Chinese: 东北平原; traditional Chinese: 東北平原; pinyin: Dōngběi Píngyuán), also known as the Manchurian Plain, is located in Northeast China. It lies between the Greater and Lesser Khinggan and Changbai mountains. Covering 350,000 km2, it is China's largest plain, with an elevation of lower than 200 meters. The Songhua, Nanjiang and Liaohe rivers run through its vast and fertile land.

The plain include Songnan Plain in north, Liaohe Plain in the south and Shanjiang Plain in the northeast.

It is suitable for mechanized farming, and huge areas are planted with wheat, corn, soy beans, rice, sugar beets, sunflowers. There are very few trees on this landscape that have not been planted, typically poplars in long rows along roads, or on either side of the train tracks. Also, there are not many fences on the landscape, no long running fences, though there are many wooden or stone fences adjacent to the houses. There is also much wetland, vast marshes, and many areas that are subject to flooding.
