Ningxia

Tengger Desert & Shapotou Scenic Zone

Yellow River winds through Ningxia for about 400 kilometers and becomes the main source of irrigation here. It makes an abrupt turn at Zhongwei county upon entering Ningxia from the west, forming the spectacular Shapotou scenic zone,This extraordinary turn, nearly 290-degrees.Tengger Desert from the north is stopped at Shapoutou by the Yellow river, resulting in a huge sand dune. Shapotou now has already become an amusement park in the desert and touristy, where tourists ride ostriches or camels, and slide on the sand. You can also take a goatskin raft. It used to be the major vehicle to take people across the Yellow river 40, 50 years ago in this area. Now the raft is floating upon 14 pieces of goat skin pumped with air.
