Ai Ding Hu
Xinjiang

Aiding Hu, 50 kilometers from Turpan City, is at the bottom of the deepest depression in China's land mass, known as Turpan Pendi.


The lake covers an area of 22 kilometers and measures 40 kilometers from west to east, 8 kilometers from north to south. The water is not very deep at an average of 0.8m, and sometimes large parts of the lake dry up. Literally nothing lives here as the salt makes for a harsh environment. This lake is the lowest lake(-154 m) sea level the lake  in China and the second lowest lake in the world (after the Dead Sea). However, Ayding hu, together with the Flaming Mountains and Grape Valley are three outstanding natural features in Turpan.
