The Taihang Mountains (Chinese: ; pinyin: Tàiháng Sh?n) are a Chinese mountain range running down the eastern edge of the Loess Plateau in Shanxi, Henan and Hebei provinces. The range extends over 400 kilometres (250 mi) from north to south and has an average elevation of 1,500 to 2,000 metres (4,900 to 6,600 feet). The principal peak is Mount Xiaowutai (2,882 metres (9,455 feet)). The Taihang's eastern peak is Cangyan Shan in Hebei; Baishi Mountain forms its northern tip.

The name of Shanxi Province, meaning "west of the mountains", derives from its location west of the Taihang Mountains,[1] as does the name of Shandong Province (east of the mountains).[2]

The Red Flag Canal is located on the south edge of the Taihang Mountains.

The Shitai Passenger Railway crosses under the Taihang Mountains via the Taihang Tunnel, which, at almost 28 kilometres (17 mi), is the third longest railway tunnel in China.
