Upon arrival at Jinchang airport, you will meet your fellow travelers and depart to the entrance of the Badain Jaran desert by private bus. You’ll change the bus for Jeeps, better equipped to cross the desert. Once in the middle of the mega dunes your adventure will start with a first walk in the desert while your luggages will be carried to your host.
Today, once the sun is already up, you will start your desert trekking tour with a 15km walk journey. While on top on the dunes you can admire the magnificent view on lake Nuretu. Everyone will have its own camel so you can walk or ride as you feel like. Tonight you will sleep nearby a temple.
Your next two days will bring you to the third highest dune in the world, from frozen oasis to frozen oasis at a rhythm of approximately 15kms per day. At that time of the year the dunes are partly covered by snow, a magical show that will render you speechless.
In the evenings you will sleep in local guesthouses.
Today is time to say goodbye to your local companions and enjoy a great jeep tour in the dunes to end this amazing week.
Then you’ll be transferred to Jinchang hotel to get a well-deserved shower.
Today, transfer to the airport to take your flight to your next destination.

"Superb trip forever etched in our memories. SC"
Unforgettable moment for me. Thanks to you of course, but also thanks to this breathtaking place and these people we met. There was a bit of cheating in the photo contest but it's already forgotten. PD"
