Photographer's Note

This is Kumtag desert near Turpan, one of the old silkroad cities in China that continues as far as Mingshashan near Tunhuang. The sand dune here is very wide and higher than the one of Taklamakan. Unlike touristic places this desert is very quiet and unspoiled. Nearby the desert one can visit some traditional villages of Uygur people with their winery, which is also worth to see.
