Panzhihua ( ) is a prefecture-level city located in the far south of Sichuan province of Southwest China, on the confluence of the Jinsha and Yalong Rivers. It has an administrative area of 7440.398 km2 (7440398000 m2), and a total population of 1,100,800 as of 2007. It is the only city in China having a name of a flower, and its economy relies almost entirely on its giant mine, one of the biggest in China. The latter makes it a very polluted city, where the air condition is quite poor.
