Around The Yellow River

As covered in this book, this region comprises an area of northern China that includes Shanxi, Ningxia, parts of Shanxi (sometimes spelled Shaanxi), and Inner Mongolia, roughly following the central loop of the Yellow River north of Xl'an.

One of China's "cradles of civilization" and rich in history, the area lays claim to most of the country's oldest surviving timber-frame buildings and its oldest carved Buddhist grottoes, as well as Pingyao, one of its best-preserved walled cities.
