Geography[edit]

Lake Xuehu, noted for its lotus plants, lies in the centre of the city. The number of plants has decreased in recent years, possibly because they provide a food source for lobsters.[citation needed]

Wanghe Town, hometown of Xuruoyu, is in the south of the city.

The Qian River with its noted River Beach flows through Qianshan from north to south.

History[edit]
