Freshwater Lake Ulungur is located in Fuhai, Xinjiang, China. Its total surface area is 1,035 square kilometers, although it is divided into two sections: the larger Buluntuo Lake and the smaller Jili Lake.

The lake is fed by the Ulungur River. Further water is diverted into it by a canal built through the watershed between the Ulungur and Irtysh rivers.

North of the lake arise the snow-capped Altai Mountains, the source of the Irtysh and Ob Rivers. The mountain range runs through central Asia, where Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan come together. As they extend southeast, the peaks gradually become lower and merge into the high plateau of the Gobi Desert.
