Located about 110 km (70 miles) from Kashgar is the Dawakun Desert. In the center of the Dawakun Desert is a lake. This spot, in Yopurga County at the edge of the Taklamakan Desert, is a great place to sunbathe, relax, and enjoy some delicious Uyghur food.
The tour starts after breakfast, since it takes around 2 hours to cover the 110 km (70 miles) to the Dawakun Desert. The Dawakun Desert is a great place to ride a camel or sand buggy and explore the desert. There are some high sand dunes and several beautiful places that are worth visiting. There are restaurants to have lunch at the Dawakun Desert, and then at the end of the day, return to Kashgar.
