About This Trip

Dunhuang was a vital transportation point on the ancient Silk Road for millennia. Therefore a plethora of historical relics has been deposited here. Combined with its distinctive landform, it is an excellent site for an educational tour to discover the ancient history, learn about Buddhism art, and get up close and personal with its unique geology, such as the desert and Yardang landform. Visit the Mogao Grottos to learn more about Buddha's history and culture. Cycle to the artist's village to gain a general idea of Dunhuang's painting. While camping at the Singing Sand Dune, look up at the flashing stars. Enjoy the fantastic landform caused by wind erosion at Yadan National Geopark.
