Dunhuang Tour

Dunhuang location2,000 Year-Old Oasis Known as the City of Sands, Dunhuang in the western part of Gansu Province was originally an important post on the ancient Silk Road. Among the most famous archaeological treasures are the Mogao Grottoes. There is a total of 492 caves housing one of the country's most famous collections of Chinese Buddhist scriptures frescoes and paintings. Other attractions include the Western Thousand-Buddha Caves and the Singing Sand Mountain.

Dunhuang lies at the western end of the Hexi Corridor in Gansu Province in Northwest China, an oasis on the eastern edge of Takli- makan Desert. It is nourished by melted snow water from the Qilian Mountains. The ancient town used to be an important stop-over point on the Silk Road. The name "Dunhuang" was given in the Han Dynasty. In Chinese "Dun" means grandness and " Huang" means prosperity. In the 2nd century B.C. Emperor Wudi of the Han Dynasty sent imperial envoy Zhang Qian to the Western Regions, opening up a trade route which was to be known as the "Silk Road" in history.The imperial court set up Dunhuang Prefecture in A.D. 111 and Dunhuang became a strategic town. Through this route Chinese culture and products, especially silk, were introduced to European and Middle East coun tries, and foreign culture and products such as Buddhism of India came to central China.
