We’ve now had a whole year of ‘Friday Photos’ on our old blog and now this new EGU hosted blog. As a special treat today we have not one, but three images from the Taklamakan Desert and some of the highest sand dunes in China.
Taklamakan Desert, China: Geotourism close to the oasis town of Dunhuang
Another example of geotourism in Gansu Province. The dunes and crescent moon lake oasis near Dunhuang are a hub for tourist activity in the area. Education and conservation however are poorly managed in favour of income generation.
