Lanzhou Maps

Lanzhou, the only city that the Yellow River goes through, is the capital of Gansu province,  She once functioned as a garrison of strategic importance on the Silk Road. Squeezed 1600 metres up into a narrow valley along the mighty Yellow River, it stretches out pencil-thin for nearly 30km. At the head of the Hexi Corridor, it was a significant fortress along the Silk Road and was the principal crossing point of the river. For centuries it has been a transportation hub, first for caravans, then shallow boats and now rail lines.
