About Whistling Dune Bay (Xiangshawan)

Whistling Dune Bay is located in the eastern corner of the Kubuqi Desert. On the lee side of the slope of this expansive desert, it appears to have the form of a crescent moon. When the weather is cool and clear and the sand is dry, visitors can hear a humming sound like that from a drum or bugle emanating from the sand as they slide down it from the peak of the dunes. The sound is louder when multiple guests slide down together, with the whole dune becoming like a giant echo wall. Whistling Dune Bay gets its name from this effect. Exploring the sea of sand by camel is an entirely different sort of experience. There is no feeling like the amazing sensation of riding the “ship of the desert” as it traverses the sands beneath the bright blue sky and white clouds.
