Huating (simplified Chinese: 华亭; traditional Chinese: 華亭; pinyin: Huátíng) is a county-level city, formerly Huating County, in the east of Gansu province, China, bordering Ningxia to the northwest. It is under the administration of the Pingliang City. Its postal code is 744100, and in 1999 its population was 176,941 people.
