Ghost Town

The City of Demons is another name for the "Wuerhe Wind City" (Wuerhe Fengcheng), which refers to one of the Yadan landforms. Bushes like camel thorns are grown in sand hills spreading everywhere because of lack of water. In the open ground, the table -like mountains originally formed by burnt ochre stones and gray green rocks which have been fallen into pieces after thousands of years' wind and water erosion look like ancient castles and palaces with Gothic, Chinese and Egyptian styles.

So this area is called "the window of the world". There are many lively shaped models such as the towering stone mushrooms, stone bamboo shoots, stone pavilions, stone columns, wide streets, narrow lanes and caves cutting down to the rocks, lively shape of birds, animals, fishes and human bodies. In summer and autumn, 7 to 8 degrees of great storms usually blow along the valley, raising the sands, whistling like ghosts and wolves. So that's the derivation of another name of the Wuerhe Wind City---the City of Monsters.
