Minhe Hui and Tu Autonomous County (simplified Chinese: 民和回族土族自治县; traditional Chinese: 民和回族土族自治縣; pinyin: Mínhé Huízú Tǔzú Zìzhìxiàn; Xiao'erjing: مٍهْ خُوِذُو تُوذُو ذِجِشِیًا) is the easternmost county in Qinghai Province, China. It is under the administration of Haidong (lit. Eastern Qinghai) Region. "Hui" refers to the Chinese Muslims, whereas "Tu" refers to the ethnic group known as “Monguor” in the West and as "Tu Zu" in China. It borders the Honggu District of Gansu on the east, demarcated by the Datong River, a tributary to the Huangshui River, which eventually flows into the Yellow River.
The County is multi-ethnic and significant to not only holding the most densely populated Tu Zu settlement in Sanchuan/Guanting in its southeastern portion, but also as the homeland of the legendary Emperor Yü the Great, who established the Xia Dynasty (2070-1600 BC), the first ever recorded dynasty in the ancient Chinese history based on recent archaeological discoveries.
