We had trouble finding the place. The maps didn't give us proper directions, but in the end we found it. It seemed like it had not been taken care of in years. Broken signs and such, but still an interesting place to see.

As far as we can figure out, Wulabo is Urabo. In AD 648, the Tang government set up the town of Luntai in the ancient town seat of Urabo, 10 kilometers from the southern suburb of present-day Ürümqi. Ancient Luntai Town was a seat of local government, and collected taxes from the caravans along the northern route of the Silk Road.

It is south of the Wulabo Reservoir off Gucheng East Rd.

This is a great place to visit. Turpan's Jiaohe and Gaochang ruins are certainly bigger and better, but if you are in Urumqi you can't do better than coming here for a morning or afternoon adventure. Apparently, it dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907). What you see is probably much later, sometime in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). (From Urumqi take the BRT 3, then the 528a bus, then the 312 bus. After this, you can either walk for about about 45 minutes or get a ride by a local person. They might charge you 10 rmb. Hey, walking is fun and good for you. The locals are friendly. It's an adventure. You wouldn't come here if you weren't an adventurer, would you?.)

Best to cycle out here through the villages. You can imagine what life must have been like here all those years ago where there used to be a massive market here every week. It's unusual to still have archaeological sites so near Urumqi so visit soon while it is still here
