The Huang Ho (Yellow river)

The Huang Ho (Yellow River), which flows 5 440km from the Himalayas across a vast plain in northern China to the East China Sea, is known as 'China's Sorrow' because over the centuries its floods have killed millions of people. For centuries the Chinese have struggled to contain the river by building banks called dykes from willow branches, kaoling (a type of sorghum) stalks, stones, sand and bricks.
