We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Crescent Lake

Crescent Lake (月牙泉), about 5 km southwest of Dunhuang city, is in shape of crescent, hence the name. Crescent Lake and Echoing-sand Dune are said to be twins, as Crescent Lake is lined by Echoing-sand Dune. Covering an area of 76.82 square kilometer, Crescent Lake is 100-meter long from north to south and 25-meter wide from east to west. It is also name the first lake of desert.

Crescent Lake was a place of interest as early as Tang Dynasty. On the south bank of the lake there are groups of ancient buildings where the main houses have more than 100 statue sculptures and hundreds of frescos. In Han Dynasty, Emperor Wu of Han put a stone named “Han Wo Wa Chi”, burnishing the legendary of the scenic spot.

According to legend that Xuanzang who traveled to the West to obtain sacred texts, passed through Dunhuang. When toiling across the desert, the white dragon horse was dead and Xuanzang was also on the verge of breaking down from the arduous environment without water and food. At this time, Guanyin caught it in the eyes and drop a drop of golden water from her golden water bottle to give Xuanzang a helping hand. The sacred water became a crescent-shaped lake. Xuanzang was saved and continued his journey to the West and the lake was left behind till today. Inside the water, there is a sort of plant called “Qi Xing Cao (Seven Star Herb)” that can cure all diseases.
