The Huang He (Yellow River) and the Chang Jiang (Yangtze) are both in central eastern China.

The western parts of both rivers are at higher elevations, their tributaries join at an angle indicating the direction of flow, and they each have an eastern terminus (mouth) in an arm of the Pacific Ocean (Bohai/Yellow/East China Sea).
