Shapotou Scenic Zone

Shapotou lies on the southern rim of the Tengger Desert and the north bank of the Yellow River. It earned the reputation of "Capital of the World of Deserts" for its luxuriant vegetation, and one of China's four humming sand dunes is situated at the top of it.
At the foot of the sand dune, limpid water flows gently in a knee-deep stream. Tourists can climb up the 100-high meter humming sand dune and slide down from the top, a resonant noise will be heard in this process; or walk further to the bank of the Yellow River, where goat-skin dinghy surfing and camel-back riding could be tasted. This is the king of sands for succeed in preventing desertification.
