Gurbant¨¹ngg¨¹t Desert occupies a large part of the Dzungarian Basin in northern Xinjiang, in the northwest of the People's Republic of China. It is also called by some sources as Dzoosotoyn Elisen Desert, presumably from a Mongolian language.It is approximately 50,000 square kilometers), and located around 300 to 600 meters above sea level. It is China's (and Xinjiang's) second largest desert, after Taklamakan Desert, which is located in the Tarim Basin.A remote, arid, and rugged area, Gurbant¨¹ngg¨¹t Desert is separated by the Tian Shan mountains from the Ili River Basin, Turfan Depression, and the Tarim Basin of the southern Xinjiang. A chain of cities, the largest of which is Ür¨¹mqi, are located within a populated strip (the route of the Lanxin Railway) south of the desert, which is irrigated by glacier-fed streams flowing from the Tian Shan. The Irtysh¨CKaramay Canal, constructed during the first decade of the 21st century, skirts the deserts northwestern edge; the Irtysh¨CÜr¨¹mqi Canal crosses the desert's central part.
