Dunhuang Mingsha Mountain
Echoing-sand Mountain is located 6km south of Dunhuang city proper, and this ranges of sand dunes winds on from Mogao Grottoes in the east, to Danghe Reservoir in the west,altogether about 40km long,20km wide,rising up at a relative height of dozens of meters.
The highest spot is its Southwest Peak of the rear mountain, about above sea level,while the primary peak of its front mountain is 1,240m above sea level.
It is o named because, under the human tread or wind blow,the sand produces a sound like a string instruments horn,a drum,or that of rumbling thunder.
Descent Lake looks exactly like a beautiful new moon lying at the north foot of Echoing-sand Mountain.
It is about 118m long from east to west, 54m wide,5m deep in four wonders: for thousands of years its shape remains exactly the same,a clean and green oasis on the deadly land,right inside the threatening sand dunes but never filled up by the sand, and a dish of the old fish from the lake will keep one always young.
- The sand mountain and the spring water here are named after the sound of the sand. The ancient name is “Shajiao Mountain” and “Shensha Mountain”.
- Climb the Mingsha Mountain, overlooking the Crescent Moon Spring, and enjoy the desert sunset on the top of the mountain and feel the vastness of the desert in the northwest.
- Crescent Moon Spring is surrounded by Mingsha Mountain. It is named after a new moon in the water. This is the most famous place in Mingsha Mountain Scenic Area
