The Oasis of Crescent Lake In Dunhuang, China

It is said that water of this crescent lake is so pure and clear that the lake looks like an emerald jewel embedded in the sand. Many facilities are also available along the side of the Lake, including a traditional Han Chinese architecture. One of the amazing things about this lake is that many camels are available with the local people who offer camel rides to many allowing them to get to the sand dunes.

The Crescent Lake is now at least two thousand years old, but the point to worry about is that for the last 30 years it has been gradually disappearing. In 1960, the lake had an average depth of 4 to 5 meters, with maximum depth 7.5 meters. Now the average depth of the lake has become only 0.9-1.3 meters.

In 2006, many steps to re-establish the lake had been taken place by the local government along with the help of the central government. The officials started to fill the lake in order to restore its depth; hence, now its depth and size have been growing gradually.
