The Dushanzi district is on the northern slope of the Tianshan Mountains, at the southwestern edge of the Junggar Basin, 250 kilometers away from Urumqi, the capital of the region. Dushanzi, or "single mountain", is the only mountain in the area. In the Uygur and Kazak languages it means "mountain of petroleum".
