It has a population of 570,000 and an area of 1,686 square kilometres (651 sq mi). The government of Qianshan County is located in Meicheng Town.

Administrative divisions[edit]

Qianshan has jurisdiction over 11 towns and 19 townships.




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.


The Two Qiaos, two sisters from the Three Kingdoms era were from Wan County, Lujiang Commandery (present-day Qianshan, Anhui).
