  • Beautiful desert where sand meets mountains and snow. It's the place where u r not afraid of heat like other deserts. Beauty of this desert is mesmerizing.
  • This desert usually used for Jeep Rally every year. I was there in 2017. As far as you see its only sands. Something unusual for the eyes. But its a nice experience!
  • Its temperature ranges from a maximum of 27 °C (81 °F) and a minimum (in October) 8 °C (46 °F), which further drop to below −17 °C (1 °F) in the December-to-January, while the lowest temperature that can reach −25 °C (−13 °F). At this high altitude and cold region, this desert holds a strange attraction. (Please hit the like button if this review was helpful to you, Thanks)
