Aiding Lake - China's lowest point

Aiding Lake - China's lowest point

This MOSTPOINT is located at the western end of the country, about 95 mi / 150 km from Urumqi, capital of Sinkiang (Xinjiang in Mandarin, Ice Jeces in Manchu, meaning both "New Frontier"), the largest province in the country. The Aiding lake lies 505 ft / 154.5 meters below sea level, making it the lowest point in China and the second lowest in the world after the Dead Sea (1364.8 ft / 416.5 m below sea level). It is a geological fault produced by various movements, including a collision between the Eurasian and Indica tectonic plates. Being an extremely arid area, agriculture is reduced to the oasis irrigated by the sophisticated Karez System, one of the three greatest works undertaken historically in the country, along with the Grand Canal and the Great Wall.
