Much of western China is guarded with the Himalaya, Tian and Pamir Ranges. Western China also has an extended desert region where as Central China consists of mountainous regions. And People's Republic of China’, is located towards the eastern part of Asian Continent, circumscribed by the Pacific Ocean.

China is the 3rd largest country in the world, next to Russia and Canada.

The Highest peak in the world, Mount Qomolangma (8,828m) stands on the border between China and Nepal.

Transportation
Transportation in ancient China was on poor condition. People traveled mainly on foot. It took several months for a candidate who expected to take the imperial examination to be a government official to go from home to the capital on foot. People also rode horses when traveling from town to town. For short-distance trips, man-carried sedans and carriages or oxcart were also used. Needless to say, all these means of transportation are in very low speed.

Now we have trains, planes, ships, buses and bikes in China. With an aggressive effort since 1949, by the Chinese government to improve their country, a comprehensive transportation system was created. It consisted of railways, highways, airplanes. Tibet, one of most inaccessible region in the world even can be reached via train since the operation of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway in first, July, 2005.
