The Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia, and the third-longest in the world. From the spring in the glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau more than 5500 m (18000 ft) above sea level, the river flows 6300 km (3915 mi) on its course eastward through almost the entire China from west through central and eastern part of the country before emptying into the East China Sea at Shanghai. The Yangtze River drainage area is more than one-fifth of China's land area. The Yangtze River basin is home to one-third of China's population, more than 440 million people. The discharge of the Yangtze River is the fifth largest in the world.
