Geography and climate

Surrounded by low hills, Ma'anshan is not as polluted as other large Chinese steel cities thanks to the local government's environmental policies. This helped the city to be recognized as one of the ten greenest cities in China. The climate is similar to other cities in the Yangtze River Delta with low humidity which makes the summers and winters less extreme. There are frequent showers in July and August.


Before the 2011 administrative reform, Ma'anshan consisted only of the Yushan , Huashan and Jinjiazhuang districts east of the Yangtze , and Dangtu County. When the prefecture-level city of Chaohu was dissolved in August 2011, the districts of Hanshan and He Ma'anshan, west of the Yangtze, were subordinated. In September 2012, the Jinjiazhuang District was dissolved and incorporated into the Huashan District. Part of Dangtu County was separated and made the new Bowang District .
