The climate of Lanzhou (China)
Lanzhou is a city situated on the old silk route in China. The city is situated in a valley on the banks of the Yellow River. One of the most beautiful attractions in the city is the Five Springs Park. Besides several natural springs you can admire several beautiful examples of Buddhist architecture. Lanzhou has a cold steppe climate. Where humidity figures are concerned Lanzhou is situated in a transitional zone between a desert climate and a tropical climate. Most of the rain falls from May till October, summers are very wet and warm. Winters are cold and dry, because of the drought snowfall is uncommon. Because Lanzhou is situated in a valley on the leeward side of the mountains pollution figures are high. During the dry winter sandstorms that come from the Gobi desert are not uncommon.
