We were now entering the sandy world ~ and what welcomed us was the sand dunes in Mt Mingsha Gobi Desert.
Wah.. Camel with
And since I'm here at the desert liao, a ride on the camel is a MUST. Some of my tour group members opt to take the 'car ride' instead of camel ride in the desert. What a waste woh...
Syiok leh riding the camel... Dunno when is the next time I will ride on a camel again?
And the camel brought us to the "centre" of the desert. The little figure in the above picture is my husband. He was busy taking photo of the Crescent Spring from above ;)
Water Springs and Deserts can hardly be related to each other, but the Crescent Spring and the Mt Mingsha Gobi Desert is an exception. And yeah, the sand and and water can actually "live together". And the water is crystal clear and the sand never gets into the spring water, and the spring never dried up. Both the Crescent Spring and the Mt Mingsha Gobi Desert have existed for hundreds or thousand years already (i lupa the exact duration liao :P)
The scene is kinda spectacular and unique huh? Healthy looking grasses, trees and the desert coexist together.
Signboard taking the shape of Camel reminding us not to waste even a single drop of water.
For those who are interested, u can buy some 'colourful' sand from the Gobi Desert back home as souvenir ;)
