Introduction to Luntai Huyang Poplar Forest (轮台胡杨林)

The Huyang Poplar Forest is near the desert highway situated in Luntai. Located near the Tarim Basin, the forest is the world's largest area of natural Huyang Poplar. The forest is over 2,700 hectares and grows along the Tarim River and stretches to the remote horizon. There is a beautiful lake in the forest that attracts swans and other species. 

The Poplar is also called the “desert hero” because of its unyielding life force and amazing ability to endure drought, sandstorms, and saline and alkali soils. Folk culture has made a hero out of them for their ability to grow erect for a thousand years, live for a thousand years after falling, and live and remain undying after death for another thousand years.
