Jiangshan (Chinese: 江山; pinyin: Jiāngshān) is a county-level city located in Quzhou prefecture, in the southwest of Zhejiang Province, China, bordering Jiangxi province to the west. Located about 250 kilometers southwest of Hangzhou, the provincial capital, it is the only county-level city in the prefecture. In 1999, Jiangshan's population stood at 563,196. The city is named aptly: Jiang means river and Shan means mountain; a river runs through the city and scenic Mt. Jianglang sits on its border.[1]

USA Today described Jiangshan as a "fairly prosperous city in one of China's most developed provinces".[2]

The Jiangshanian Age of the Cambrian Period of geological time is named for Jiangshan.
