(4.1/5 based on 260 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.

  • 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.
