Taklamakan Desert, which means in Uighur 'enter and never return', swallows almost everything near it. The Taklamakan is bordered on 3 sides by some of the highest mountain ranges in the world: to the north, by the Heavenly Mountains (Tian Shan); to the west, by the Pamirs (Roof of the World); and to the south, by the Karakoram and Kunlun Mountains. To the east lie the Lop Nor and Gobi Deserts. The infamous Taklamakan had been feared and cursed by travelers for more than 2,000 years. It once was a Go-If-You-Dare tour.
The Taklamakan Desert, also known as Taklimakan and Teklimakan, is a desert in northwest China, in the southwest portion of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. It is bounded by the Kunlun Mountains to the south, and the desert Pamir Mountains and Tian Shan (ancient Mount Imeon) to the west and north.To the east lie the Lop Nor and Gobi Deserts. The infamous Taklamakan had been feared and cursed by travelers for more than 2,000 years. It once was a Go-If-You-Dare tour.
The name is probably an Uyghur borrowing of Arabic tark, "to leave alone/out/behind, relinquish, abandon" + makan, "place". Another plausible explanation is that it is derived from Turki taqlar makan, which means "the place of ruins".Popular accounts claim that Takla Makan means "go in and you will never come out". It may also mean "The point of no return" or "The Desert of Death".
Today, however, tourists can have a good view of the splendid and boundless Taklamakan Desert on camel's back, while enjoying the beautiful fishing in the reservoir.
