Singing Sand Dunes and the Crescent Lake Tour Guide:
Two of the most magnificent natural attractions on the Silk Route, the Singing Sand Dunes and the Crescent Lake transport you to an entirely different world of mystic allure. Nestled on the outskirts of Dunhuang, the Singing Sand Dunes of China or the Mingshashan Hills are gigantic sand dunes, exquisitely beautiful in appearance and singing sensations.
Hop on to a camel back and ride your way across the undulating sand dunes, resplendent in their golden glory, even as the wind carries the vivid eerie music of the singing sands to your ears. Once on top of the dunes, enjoy the exquisite views all around. The Crescent lake, just below with its smattering of buildings will capture your attention and your heart with its mystical beauty.
Shaped like a crescent, the lake resembles the eye of a lady and is full of mystical allure; the water in it sparkles and shimmers, and is amazingly crystal clear with not a single drop of sand – a mystery in the middle of a singing desert.
