Yellow river / Huang He / Hwang Ho

Yellow River or Huang He / Hwang Ho (simplified Chinese: 黄河; traditional Chinese: 黄河; pinyin: Huang He, Mongolia: Hatan goal, River Queen) is the second longest river in China (after Yangtze River) and the seventh longest in the world in the estimation length of 5464 kilometers (3395 miles).
Derived from the Bayan Har Mountains in Qinghai Province in western China, flows through nine provinces of China and empties into the Bohai Sea. Yellow River Valley has an east-west border of 1,900 km (1180 mi) north-south and some 1,100 km (684 miles). Basin Area Total 742,443 km ² (290,520 mi ²).

The Yellow River is called "cradle of Chinese civilization", such as the basin is the birthplace of Chinese civilization north and is the most prosperous region in early Chinese history. But the flood destroyed most often caused by increases in the downstream riverbed, also get a nice "Sorrow of China" and "Scourge of the Sons of Han."

Early Chinese literature refers to the Yellow River simply as He (), a word that has come means only "stream" in modern languages (in ancient times, however, and 川 水used the " river "thatmeans ) . The first appearance of the name "Yellow River" (黄河) is in the Book of Han (Chinese simplified: 汉书; traditional Chinese: 汉书; pinyin: Han Shu), written in Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 9). The name "Yellow River" describes the color of yellow ocher-lasting than the muddy water downstream. The yellow color comes from the Loess suspended in water.

Sometimes the Yellow River is poetically called the "Muddy Flow" (simplified Chinese: 浊流; traditional Chinese: 浊流; pinyin: Liu Zhuo). Chinese idiom "when the Yellow River flows clear" is used to refer to an event that will never happen and is similar to the English expression "when pigs fly".

In Qinghai, Tibetan name is "river of the peacock" (Wylie: r ma chu, 玛曲 maqu p / 玛曲).
