  • The History of China
  • With many different climate zones across its vast landmass, China experiences all extremes of weather ranging from the hot, wet summers and warm winters of the sub-tropical southwestern coast and high temperatures of the Turpan Depression to the cool summers and long, dry winters of its mountainous regions. Rainfall is sparse in the arid northern uplands and the near-Siberian northeast but plentiful in the humid south and east.
