Haze or smoke over eastern China rests near the foot of the Taihang Mountains, a range running down the eastern edge of the Loess Plateau in Henan, Shanxi and Hebei provinces.

The range extends over 400 km from north to south and has an average elevation of 1,500 to 2,000 meters. The principal peak is Xiao Wutaishan (2,882 metres). Cangyan Shan in Hebei forms the eastern tip of the Taihang range.
