Qinghai Golmud Hu Yanglin

Huyang Lin is located in the Kunlun Mountains in the south and the Gobi Salt Beach in the north. It is the only forest in the Qinghai that is the highest in the world.

Throughout the year, the Populus euphratica has its own characteristics, and it is necessary to count the golden poplars.

It is best to shoot golden Populus, preferably in October every year when Populus euphratica turns from green to yellow.

Hu Yanglin has two main entrances, one to see the new Populus euphratica, one to see the old Populus euphratica, and to buy tickets from the two gates.

In the desert and sand, Populus euphratica is the only species that can naturally grow into forests. Populus has a history of 3 million to 6 million years. The roots of Populus euphratica can grow up to 15 meters long and spread around. In order to absorb water in an extremely dry environment, it can reach 13 meters underground.

  • Tips: There are two paths to Huyanglin. One is to enter the southwest from the vicinity of the scenic signboard. The Populus euphratica is tall and dense, with many young trees. It can also be seen on the riverside to watch the scenery of the Shahe River, but the road is far away.
