Mountain
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.

  • 这里属于成年大宝宝们撒野的地方,可以不要租鞋套,由于这里的沙特别细腻,赤脚在沙上面走走跳跳感觉真是不错。骑骆驼不能错过的项目,骆驼上用手机拍照拍照需要另外收费20一人由领队帮你拍,建议大家拍下。滑沙由于以前有过滑草不爽的经历实在不想参与,至于飞行器考虑到自己是保守人对于安全系数还是很敏感不参与。跑在沙山上撒野真爽啊。很多地方还是去的,考虑到安全大家遵守下吧。  more »
  • As the only westerner in the whole park that I could see, understanding the camel guide was a bit difficult. All I can say is just do it. The guide takes you on a camel up to near the top of a sand du...  more »
  • Beautiful sand dunes are already visible when you starting from the Center with a vd local vans ri the desert ride. Breathtaking OASIS. Everything is possible here: trudge through the desert sand (with or without the ' Donald Duck ' pockets to your shoes), camel rides, quad biking, fly. Take a look especially at sunrise or sunset from one of the sand dunes. It's a bit of a scramble because there are no planking, but the effort is rewarded. I'm really fallen in love with this place; the heat, the beautiful surroundings and the friendly people who are only on a street in the city center with long table a large barbecue fest seem to keep have mn heart conquered.
