Rectangular fields cover the land east of Lake Ulungur, in Fuhai, Xinjiang, China. With an area of 1,035 square kilometers, the lake is one of China’s ten largest freshwater lakes.

Lake Ulungur is divided into two sections: Buluntuo Lake and the smaller Jili Lake and is fed by the Ulungur River. In 1969, a canal was built through the watershed between the Ulungur and the Irtysh River in order to divert water into the lake.
