Huachi County (simplified Chinese: 华池县; traditional Chinese: 華池縣; pinyin: Huáchí Xiàn) is a county in the east of Gansu province, China, bordering Shaanxi province to the north and northeast. It is under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Qingyang. Its postal code is 745600, and its population in 2018 was 138,680 people. Huachi has a low population density and is one of the poorer counties of China, partly because of the dry climate.[1]

Parts of the Qin Great Wall run through Huachi. Huachi was established as a county during the Western Wei dynasty. During the Five Dynasties period it was abolished, becoming part of neighbouring counties. In 1934 it was re-established. During the first encirclement campaign against the Shaanxi–Gansu Soviet it was home to the Nanliang communist base.[1]

Huachi's important agricultural produce includes white melon seeds, daylily, wood ear mushroom and millets.[1]
