Hanzhong Trip Planner
Hanzhong is a prefecture-level city in southwest Shaanxi province. It is known as China's charm city.IntroductionHanzhong is located at the nowadays headwater of the Han River, the largest tributary of the Yangtze River. However some modern historians suggested that the nearby Xihan River, a major tributary of the neighbouring Jialing River to the west, historically drained into the Han River instead, and was later rerouted by a large earthquake at the Wudu Commandery (武都郡, in modern-day eastern Longnan) in 186 BC, possible due to landslide damming. This might explain the city's name, since its location was historically once the middle point of the ancient Han River.The founder of the Han dynasty, Liu Bang, was once enfeoffed as the king of the Hanzhong region after overthrowing the Qin dynasty. During the Chu-Han contention, Liu Bang shortened his title to the King of Han (漢王), and later used it as the name of his imperial dynasty. In this way, Hanzhong was responsible for the naming of the Han dynasty, which was later hailed as the first golden age in Chinese history, as well as the principal ethnic group who proudly inherited the name from the dynasty's prominence.Whether you only want to go to Hanzhong, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly China tour itinerary builder tool.
