11 cities with no mountains in their lives: the highest altitude does not exceed 100 meters, and some people have never seen mountains in their lives

China is more mountainous than most people can imagine. In fact, the plains cover only 12 percent of the country's territory. For the rest of the country, mountains account for 33.3%, hills account for 9.9%, and there are many plateaus and basins. When you think about it, plateaus and basins also contain a lot of mountains. Therefore, large mountains and small mountains are counted, and mountains can definitely occupy more than half of the entire country. But there are also some areas in our country, the whole territory is a plain, there is really no mountain. Some people who have been living locally have never even seen a mountain in their entire life. In my country, there are 11 cities, and there is not a single mountain in the territory. Let's take a look at what these 11 cities are. If there is a city where you live, please raise a paw in the comments.

Liaoning Panjin

Panjin, located in the south-central Liaoning Province, is an important industrial base in my country. Panjin City governs one county and three districts, with a total area of ​​4,102.9 square kilometers and a permanent population of about 1.39 million. Panjin is located in the center of the Liaohe delta. The territory is all plains formed by basin deposits, very flat, with minimal height fluctuations. The average elevation of Panjin is only 4 meters, the highest point is 18.2 meters, and the lowest point is 0.3 meters. Such a flat, low-lying terrain creates the characteristics of Panjin with lots of water and no mountains. Panjin's tourism resources are relatively simple, mainly wetland landscapes. Among them, the Red Beach is a national 5A-level scenic spot, with beautiful reeds and shallow beaches.

Hebei Cangzhou

Cangzhou is located in the southeastern part of Hebei Province, close to the Bohai Sea. The city center is 120 kilometers away from Tianjin and 240 kilometers away from Beijing.

Shandong Dezhou

Dezhou is an industrial city located in the northwest of Shandong. The city has 2 districts, 2 county-level cities and 7 counties under its jurisdiction, with a total area of ​​10,356 square kilometers and a permanent population of about 5.6 million. Dezhou is the alluvial plain of the Yellow River. There are no mountains in the whole area, but it fluctuates slightly due to the influence of flowing water. However, in the 1980s in Texas, a small mountain, Pinecui Mountain, was built artificially, and its main peak, Yihe Peak, was 30 meters high. Pinecui Mountain is located in Xinhu Scenic Area. I'm not sure about this: Do you think this kind of rockery in the park is a mountain? The scenic spots in Dezhou are mainly historical sites and religious sites, but also some wetlands, forest parks, leisure parks, etc. The most famous is the Xinhu Scenic Area in the urban area.

Hengshui, Hebei, 12 to 30 meters

Located in the southeast of Hebei Province, Hengshui has 2 municipal districts and 1 county-level City and 8 counties, with a total area of ​​8,836 square kilometers and a registered population of 4.59 million. Hengshui is an alluvial plain with an altitude of 12 to 30 meters, with minimal fluctuations. It is said that there used to be a hill in Hengshui called "Wuqiang Mountain", and the name of Wuqiang County came from this. But now the mountain (or the big mound) no longer exists, is it leveled down, or is the legend untrue?

Yancheng is low-lying, and most areas are below 5 meters above sea level. The terrain of Yancheng is unbelievably flat. The maximum relative height in the territory is less than 8 meters.

If any city is missed, please feel free to add it generously. Which city do you live in? I am [Light Up China], and I am currently on a long journey around the motherland.
