Dunhuang, China

The magic Mingshashan and Crescent Lake

Just about 10km from the downtown, Mingsha Shan (the Echoing-Sand Mountain) along with Crescent Lake is the major tourist attractions of Dunhuang which clearly depict the wild and magical scenery of desert landscape in China. If Mingsha Shan famous for its magnificent sand dunes and the natural sounds made of the blown-up sand mountains like Orchestra music, Crescent Lake is a little beautiful oasis surrounded by great dunes with some well-decorated traditional Chinese architecture, trees and flowers and a lake that shapes like a crescent moon. Having a camel ride through the dessert and enjoying the sightseeing is the most favorite travel experience here. The scenic area is simply awe-inspiring with many imposing spectacles of sand and the endless lines of walking camel fleet, which evoke you unforgettable imaginations of traditional caravans and traders dating back the Ancient Silk Road. Beside photography, there are a lot of adrenaline activities to have fun here such as sand skiing, desert motorcycle, bonfire party, etc.
