Renosant Sand Bay of Kubuqi desert
Located in the Kubuqi Desert in Erdos, Resonant Sand Bay is also known as "Yinken Resonant Sand" ("Yinken" in Mongolian means 'eternal"). Sand dunes in the Resonant Sand Bay reach as high as 100 metres and the desert itself stretches on for several hundred kilometres.
In the conditions of the dry climate, when surfing along the slopes of the dunes, it produces a sounds resembling a bugle or a beating drum. If several people are surfing together, the sound will louder and you will feel the whole dune tremble. Recently scholars proposed scientific principles to explore its cause of formation. However, no substantial progress was achieved.
Strolling on the sea of sand, admiring the beautiful scenery and listening to the camel-bells is only part of your unique experience. Here, you can experience sand exploration, horse and camel riding, glider flying, motor racing, target practice, arrow shooting, sand baths and swimming.
Living in a Mongolian tent, eating mutton by hand, tasting fresh milk and Ordos wine, and listening to Ordos songs and dances and a unique Ordos wedding performance performed by the Xiangshawan Artistic Troupe is all part of this memorable experience.
