GEOGRAPHY ESSAY Over the years in history, geographic traits have influenced historical development and historical events of the nations and regions in both China and India. In both India and China, the Himalayan Mountains had a huge effect on how they lived their everyday lives. The Himalayans had a positive influence on both nations. When China had begun to develop, it developed along the yellow Huang He and the Yangtze Rivers. China is surrounded by deserts, Himalayan Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean. These three natural barriers had kept China isolated and stopped the spread of trading with others. Since China was so isolated, they referred to themselves as the “Middle Kingdom” because they thought they were in the middle of the earth. The Himalayan Mountains had a big impact on China because that was their main source of water. At the top of the Himalayan Mountains, there was ice, and when that ice melted the water would come down the mountain in a stream of water. The Chinese planted their crops on the Himalayan Mountains because when the water melts from the top of the mountain; it would come strolling down into the plants. This type of planting was called step planting. The Chinese planted their crops on the Himalayan Mountains because there was only 10% of farm land to plant other than the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan Mountains help protect China because no one would want to climb over those mountains because if they did they would die trying. In China the Yellow River flooding was unpredictable due to the fact there was no weather channel that could tell them the forecast. The flooding was very sad for the Chinese people so they called it “China’s Sorrow.” The flooding often demolished entire villages. After the Yellow River flooded, it left behind loess. Loess is fertile soil that is left behind after the flooding is over. The Chinese used the loess to help plant their crops. This proved to be a benefit of flooding in contrast to the damage it caused toward the villages. India is a subcontinent that is surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains, Hindu Kush Mountains, and the Indian Ocean. In India you have three different types of weather/ habitats. You have cold weather if you were near the mountains, deserts, and summer. Because of this, you…
