The Aydingkol Lake

 Located 50 kilometers to the south of the city of Turfan, the Aydingkol Lake is 154 meters below sea level, lowest in China and second lowest in the World—next only to the Dead Sea ( -391m ) in Jordan. It covers an area of 220 thousands square kilometers. Except for a sheet of very shallow water in its southwest part,only silvery white salt crusts shimmering on the dried-up lakebed cover today`s Aydingkol. So local call it “ Moonlight Lake ”. Attracted by this peculiar geographical characteristics and desert landscapes round, visitors from all over China and abroad come here to sightsee and explore.
