Lop Nur, located between the Taklamakan and Kumtag deserts in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, is a former salt lake but now largely dried-up. The lake measured 3,000 square kilometers in 1942, but dried out since 1970, with only small seasonal lakes forming in local depressions in Taitema. Now it is covered with a salt crust ranging from 30 cm to 1 m in thickness. Along with the development of local sylvite resource in recent years, silent Lop Nor shows great vitality again. Known as the "sea of death" for its high salt content, Lop Nur is a paradise for visitors who love adventure.
