Luntai Huyang Poplar Forest Park-

 Luntai Attractions

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.


The best way to travel to Luntai is to take a train from Urumqi. On your arrival in Luntai to get to the Huyang Poplar Forest Park, we suggest hiring a private car so you can take in the beautiful scenery along the way.

Best Time to Visit:

In autumn, Huyang poplars show their beauty in the middle of October to November. This is the ideal time to visit Luntai. The trees begin to transform from a shade of yellow to a deep crimson which is a magnificent autumn sight.


The entrance to Luntai Huyang Poplar Forest Park costs 50RMB.
