Sand Lake Tourist Area

The endless desert in the south of the lake shows you broadness and magnificence. Well-trained camels, the ships of the desert, take you deep to the desert and experience the natural wonder you never know.

It is a paradise for birds in China. Every year during spring and autumn, over one million migratory birds stay at Sand Lake. Among them there are many rare species including white cranes, black cranes, red-crowned cranes, swans, wild ducks and mandarin ducks. At the same time, Sand Lake is also a good place for birdwatchers.
