Wuhai

Wuhai

Wuhai (Mongolian: ᠦᠬᠠᠢ ᠬᠣᠲᠠ Үқаи қота Üqai qota; Chinese: 乌海市) is a prefecture-level city and regional center in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of the China, and is by area the smallest prefecture-level division of the region. It is located on the Yellow River between the Gobi and Ordos deserts. Wuhai became a single city occupying both banks of the Yellow River with the amalgamation on 1976 of left-bank (west) Uda (then administrated by Bayan Nuur League) together with Haibowan on the right (east) bank (then administrated by Ikh Juu league). Wuhai is one of very few cities with an antipode which is not only on land (as opposed to open ocean), but which is another inhabited city; the antipode of Wuhai is almost exactly on the city of Valdivia, Chile.
