(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Trek through a vast sandy desert of Mingsha Shan (Echo Sand Mountain) Park, Dunhuang, China. Close to a main city and not prone to harsh weather, the environment offers a perfect opportunity for tourists to experience an arid landscape. Choose from various trails, traversable by foot or camel. As you explore, listen for the roar of the desert--a gentle wind bouncing off the sand often produces a harmonic tone, while walking down the dunes can result in a sound resembling loud thunder.
