“130Y to climb a sanddune - go 1KM west and do it for free.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2010

This has to be the biggest rip-off in China. It is overrun with sandboarders, gliders, camel riders and RVs with no real redeeming features. If you take the path to the left or 1KM you can come out into the sand dunes and climb them without tourists and get the views of the dunes running away into the distance for free.
