Situated about 100 kilometers from Karamay city, Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Karamay Yardang Ghost Town is a tourist area famous for its unique landforms and howling wind.

When great winds or sandstorms rise, they roar through the town like howling ghosts, with sand and dust blocking out the sky. Some people believe that the sounds are the reason people call it a ghost town.

In 2005, the site won recognition as "China's Most Beautiful Yardang Landscape" in the Beautiful Places in China competition.
