I believe that many people have planted a dream about Populus euphratica. "Life is not a thousand years of death, not a thousand years of death, but a thousand years of immortality." This is the legend about Populus euphratica.
Every autumn, it is the most splendid beginning of the year. Populus euphratica, called Ukrainian in the Uighur language, means "the most beautiful tree." Populus euphratica is tenacious, resistant to drought, suffocating sand, and salt-tolerant. People call it the "desert hero tree."
Populus euphratica is selected from the desert and the saline-alkali land. Their roots are deeply rooted in the arid underground. This kind of vitally endangered primitive tree species has been hailed as a warrior against the desert.
There are many places in Xinjiang that can see Populus euphratica. The shape of Populus euphratica in each place is very different, and there are some discrepancies in the time when the leaves of Populus euphratica turn yellow and fall. Therefore, from mid-October to the end of November, you can see the beautiful Populus euphratica forest in Xinjiang.
Mustang International Club, urban poplar forest
After arriving in Urumqi, Xinjiang, you can start the tour of Populus. In the past, Populus euphratica can only go to the desert and the Gobi. Now, at the Mustang International Club in Urumqi, you can see a large Populus euphratica forest.
The branches of Populus euphratica are very large and very old. They are basically transported from other places to the later stage. In the late autumn, the leaves of Populus euphratica are still golden and beautiful.
The Huyang forest area of the club is not large, but their form is not bad. It is not a problem to spend a few hours with the small partners here. Of course, in the club, you can still have a sweaty and healthy posture.
Most of the poplar trees in the club are dead wood, but compared with the live plants next to it, it is a bit more artistic.
Mu Lei Hu Yanglin, the hero on the saline-alkali land
Mulei Huyanglin is 30 kilometers north of Mulei Mingsha Mountain in Changji Prefecture, Xinjiang. There are not many tourists coming here, but the scenery is very shocking.
Mulei Populus euphratica covers an area of more than 30 square kilometers, and has a history of 65 million years. Although it has experienced vicissitudes of life, it still maintains its original original features.
It takes about two and a half hours to get off from Mulei County by car. The surrounding area of Populus euphratica is a relatively open land with few vegetation and a layer of white salt on the land. The local partners say this is a saline-alkali land.
About ten minutes walk from the entrance of the scenic spot, I came to Hu Yanglin. The Populus euphratica trees are scattered on the saline-alkali land and have different forms.
The leaves of the Populus euphratica tree fell relatively early. When I went to Populus euphratica, there were almost no leaves on the tree. The bare branches were a bit more desolated and tragic.
In addition to Populus euphratica, there are a large number of Haloxylon ammodendrons, as well as camel thorns and sand dates. Along the road passes through a large piece of Haloxylon in the roadside, the ability to prevent wind and sand is super strong.
There is only one restaurant and one hotel near Mulei Huyanglin, which will only be open during the peak season. If you plan to play in the scenic area for a long time, please remember to bring dry food and drinking water, and the temperature difference between morning and evening is particularly large, especially the night is shivering.
And the last Tati let Hu Yanglin, the defender of the desert
In Qiemo County, south of Bazhou, Xinjiang, the fall is the most beautiful time here. It is also the second largest county in China in the southeastern part of the Tarim Basin. In the middle and late October, the Populus Festival of Tatijan will come as scheduled, and the ancient Populus euphratica will intersect with people's lives.
At the end of the day, Huyanglin and Hongliulin, which are distributed in large areas, can see large and large golden leaves in the distance. They have not yet entered Huyanglin, and the whole people are excited.
These ancient and vigorous forests are the "guardians" of the end.
The leaves of Populus euphratica are also very beautiful. The leaves of Populus euphratica in autumn and in the end are different in shape or leaves are like eggs, or the state is like a willow leaf. The layers are layered and dense, and it is quite beautiful to stand under the tree.
In fact, there is a lively market in the Huyang Lin in Tati, and the songs and dances of the people on the scene infect the mood of tourists.
There are also a lot of local specialties, which makes Tati let the town's Huyang Festival taste rich, especially when you are tired, come to a bowl of hot and sour jelly or a piece of watermelon, it feels cool.
Taklimakan, vast expanse of desert
There is another mysterious landscape at the same time – the Taklimakan Desert, the vast expanse of the desert.
The desert is also very suitable for taking pictures. The contours of the dunes and the texture of the sand are good targets, and the layers are very textured.
The Taklimakan Desert is the largest desert in China. The annual precipitation is no more than 100 mm. The sand here is fine.
The most special is to witness a starry sky music festival in the desert, facing the stars and moonlight, accompanied by long sounds and gorgeous fireworks, extremely romantic.
The desert night is particularly cold, everyone is wrapped in a thick down jacket, but at the scene of the Starry Sky Festival, everyone's enthusiasm is not diminished, and the sound of the rumors that have been passed down for more than 3,000 years echoed again in the vast sea of sand. Many people at the scene turned on the flashlight of the mobile phone, accompanied by the sound of the piano, swinging left and right.
Xinjiang cuisine on the tip of the tongue
Xinjiang is a place that makes people feel fat. The food here is too much, and the amount is super powerful. It is easy to eat. When it comes to Xinjiang's cuisine, lamb skewers, noodles, rice intestines, peppers, chicken, hand-picked rice, big chickens, etc. are worth a try.
Face lung / rice intestine
Among the special flavor snacks of various ethnic groups in Xinjiang, the face lungs and the rice intestines are like a pair of twin brothers, who can always meet them together at the food stalls.
Rice intestines and noodles have unique flavors and are typical Xinjiang dishes. They can be used as snacks or as staple foods. Rice intestines are chewy in the sputum, with the upper lungs. After the entrance, slowly chew, spicy taste for a long time. Staying in the mouth and tongue, you can't stop.
Pepper and chicken are the must-eat foods in Xinjiang. The delicious chicken meat is perfectly collided with red pepper, green pepper and heavy green pepper. It has an entrance and the leaves still have blue pepper.
Hand-picked rice is a food that is popular among people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. It is called "Polu" in Uighur. The cooked pilaf is bright and fragrant, delicious and nutritious. The pilaf is similar to our fried rice, but the taste is richer.
Pilaf is one of the must-have foods for Uyghur national festivals and hospitality. Fresh lamb, carrots, onions, clear oil, sheep oil and rice are the main ingredients for pilaf. The pilaf was first eaten by hand, but now everyone is eating a pilaf and switching to a spoon.
Xinjiang Dapan Chicken is believed to be familiar to many people, but the local large-scale chickens in Xinjiang are very different from other places. The soup is thicker and the chicken is more tender. It is served with potatoes, green onions, peppers, etc. Ingredients, the taste is endless.
