云贵高原(the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau)大部分位于云南、贵州省境内，总面积约50万平方公里，平均海拔2,000-4,000米，是中国第四大高原。云贵高原西高东低，河流众多，形成了许多又深又陡的峡谷(canyon)。峡谷中许多地方土壤肥沃，非常有利于多种农作物生长。
Most of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau is located in Yunnan and Guizhou Provinces. With a total area of about 500,000 square kilometers and an average elevation of 2,000-4,000 meters, it is the fourth largest plateau in China. The Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau is high in the west and low in the east, with numerous rivers forming many deep and steep canyons. The fertile soil in many parts of the canyon is very conducive to the growth of many kinds of crops.
The unique natural environment of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau has created biological and cultural diversity. It is an area with abundant forest and mineral resources in China, and it is also an
important area for the origin of ancient humans. The Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau is home to the largest number of ethnic minorities in China, and all ethnic groups maintain rich and diverse cultural traditions.
黄土高原(the Loess Plateau)是中国第三大高原，面积约60万平方公里，平均海拔1000-2000米，绝大部分覆盖者50-80米厚的黄土，是世界上黄土分布最集中、覆盖厚度最大的区域。这是大自然创造的一个奇迹，在世界上也是绝无仅有的。
The Loess Plateau is the third largest plateau in China, with an area of about 600,000 square kilometers and an average altitude of 1000-2000 meters. Most of it is covered with 50-80 meters thick loess and it is the region with the most concentrated loess distribution and the largest coverage thickness in the world. This is a miracle created by nature and unique in the world.
Loess Plateau is one of the birthplaces of the Chinese nation. As early as 5500 years ago, people have already started farming on the Loess Plateau. With the continuous development of farming, the population of Loess Plateau has been increasing, and it became the political and economic center of China during the Qin and Han Dynasties. Nowadays, with the implementation of the Western Development Strategy, the economy of the Loess Plateau region has been developing rapidly.
青藏高原(the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau)位于中国西南部，面积约230万平方公里，平均海拔4000米以上，被称为"世界屋脊"。青藏高原自然资源丰富，风景秀丽，拥有多种珍稀野生动物。
The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is situated in the southwest of China, with an area of about 2.3 million square kilometers and an average altitude of more than 4 kilometers. It is caled the“roof of the world”. The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is abundant in natural resources, beautiful scenery and a variety of rare wild animals.
The temperature of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is very low, thus forming a large area of mountain glaciers. It is the source of many famous rivers in Asia and the main source of fresh water supply in China and Southeast Asia. The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is vital for the global ecosystem.
Due to the impact of climate change, glaciers on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau are melting at an accelerating rate. China has been committed to protecting the ecosystem of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Grassland coverage is increasing, and many endangered species are being protected more effectively.
