Day 3 Grasslands - Resonant Sand Gorge - Baotou (by automobile)
In the morning, watch the amazing sunrise in the grassland.
Then take a car ride to the Kubuqi Desert, China's seventh largest desert (about 3.5hours). Pass the Yellow River Bridge en route.
On arrival, take a visit to the Resonant Sand Gorge. Located at the east of the Kubqi Desert, the Resonant Sand Gorge (also called Resonant Sand Bay) has a dune rising up to 90 meters high with a slope of about 45 degrees. When you climb to its summit and slide down, the sound will be so loud that you might feel as if the dune is trembling.
You could try camel-riding or sand sliding at your own expense.
