Lop Nur or Lop Nor is a former salt lake in China, now largely dried-up, located between the Taklamakan and Kumtag deserts. Lop Nor is China’s only nuclear weapons test site, conducts nuclear weapons training and may be a major nuclear weapons stockpile location. The Lop Nor test site covers 100,000 square kilometers.

China formally established the Lop Nor Nuclear Test Base on 16 October 1959 with Soviet assistance in selection of the site. Lop Nor was the site of China’s first nuclear test.
