Then we will drive to Mingsha Shan & Yueya Quan. When Aurel Stein settled down by this spring to churn out his memoirs, he opined, "It lay hidden away amidst high sands beyond the southern edge of the oasis and about three miles from the town. For the desert wanderer there could be no more appropriate place of rest, I thought, than this delightful little pilgrimage place enclosed all around by sand-ridges rising to over 75m (250 ft.) in height. There was a limpid little lake, of crescent shape and about a quarter of a mile long, which has given the locality its name and its sanctity."

After the tour you will be transfered back to your hotel and finish the tour today.
