Day Trip to Dawakol Desert
Activities: Day trip to Dawakol deseret
Dawankul is the perfect desert experience if you’re short on time. A corner of sand dunes of the Taklimakan Desert, only a couple of hours drive from Kashgar. Camel rides and dune buggies are available.
If you decide to make it a day-trip, the desert is only 160m (100miles) from Kashgar city. Starting at 8:00am (local time), we drive through lovely villages and arrive after 2 hours. Then you will have enough time to ride Camels or walk on the sand enjoying the beautiful scenery of Mother Nature.
There is a famous lake just by the desert named Dakul Lake, which means that which can cure sickness’. In this area local people try to cure their illnesses by covering themselves in hot sand and swim in the Lake. After riding Camels or have some more fun in the desert, swimming in the Lake would be the most memorable and enjoyable at the end of an exciting day.
