When I thought about China I never imagined the second largest sand sea in the world. The Taklimakan Desert is formed about 25 million years ago and located in China’s northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. It is indeed the second largest shifting-sand desert in the world, just after Sahara Desert in Africa.

The city Dunhuang has a spectacular area of natural scenery: the Singing Sand (Mingsha) Mountains. The mountains are pale golden sand dunes dozens of meters high, covering an area roughly 40 km. The contrast of the blue Crescent Lake and lush vegetation with the golden sand is quite poetic and a good to spend a day or tree.

Sharp lines, soft sandy colors & and a invasion of Chinese riding a camel in costume.

Don’t forget your selfie stick and wear your snowboots to enjoy these pretty perspectives!
