Echoing-sand Mountain

Echoing-sand Mountain

Seen from afar, the Mingsha Mountain just seems like a golden dragon winding on the horizon, which is seven kilometers south of Dunhuang. As one of the most famous national scenic spots, it covers an area of 200 square kilometers. The Mingsha Mountain is actually a mountain specially made of sand, with two unique features. That is, when you are sliding down the mountainside, you may hear the sands produce a gentle sound; when you walk through the mountain, you may surprisingly find your footprints disappear the next day. Since the wind blows, the sand roars or whispers, which are akin to a song or an echo, thus the Mingsha Mountain gets its name.

Facing this mountain, you may feel yourself in a sea of sand. And when approaching, you will find the sand has various colors ranging from red to yellow, green, black and white. All tourists are stunned by this awful natural phenomenon when they come here, then what are you waiting for?
