  Lanzhou lies in the center of Gansu and also is China's northwestern geographical center.

  Situated on the upper reaches of the Yellow River, Lanzhou is the capital and largest city of Gansu Province in the northwest of China.

  Lanzhou, located at 102°35’58”-104°34’29” east longitude and 35°34’20”-37°7’7” north latitude, lies in the center of Gansu and also is China's northwestern geographical center.

  Historically a key point on the ancient Silk Road, Lanzhou, at the southern end of the route leading via the Hexi Corridor across Central Asia, has played a crucial role in the trade and cultural exchanges between East and West. It commands the approaches to the ancient capital of Chang'an (now Xi'an) in Shaanxi, as well as Qinghai Lake via the Yellow River and its tributaries. It is China's only provincial capital where the Yellow River runs through the entire city, from east to west.
