In the vast desert, a gust of wind can erase all footprints. The sky is high and the road is far away, and many wonderful stories will dissipate in the wind.
Badain Jaran can satisfy all your imaginations and fantasies about the desert. The vast desert is wild and wide, with bright yarns and ripples left by the wind. With many lakes, it is a real desert oasis not visited by many tourists.
Nuoertu, where sand and water reflect each other, and water and sky are connected. The sandy hills and ridges overlap each other, reflecting the blue sky into the lake, like a parallel and symmetrical painting. The reeds on the shore and the flower sticks in the sand nest sway with the wind, adding a bit of agility to the "desert wonderland".
Bilutusha Peak, which is the world's largest sand peak located in the hinterland of Badain Jaran, is rarely climbed by outsiders.The relative height of more than 500 meters is more than 70 meters higher than the second highest sand peak in the world in the Sahara Desert. Climbing to the "Desert Mount Everest" and looking into the distance, there are endless sandy mountains, and six crystal seas are scattered among the sandy mountains. The yellow sand and clear water are both true and illusory.
Yinderitu Lake, the "sacred spring" in the hearts of the locals is in the lake.
There are 108 springs on a reef of less than 3 square meters. Sweet spring water is gushing day and night. Perhaps the sun of a thousand years ago was scorching Wuzhen’s broken robes. Perhaps it was this miraculous spring that saved them. Their lives have strengthened their faith.
Dagtu Honghaizi. Climbing over the sand dunes, Haizi, who met Mei Hong and Qianfen, suddenly ran into his eyes, like a teardrop. Such a beautiful scenery may be regarded as a miracle of the Buddhist kingdom by the pious monks.
Quasi-jigede lake. Accompanied by purple and blue on the spectacle lake.
And knowing that this kind of spectacle only belongs to Badain Jaran, walking out of this desert, it has become a beautiful legend that is extolled by people but no one can believe.
Badain Jaran Temple. This "Desert Palace" was built during the Qianlong period (AD 1755). It lived deep in the desert hinterland, and all bricks and woods were transported from outside the desert. Although hiding in the desert and standing alone for more than 260 years, this sacred building is still dazzling.
