This tour will cover the famous sceneries of Mogao grottoes and Sanwei mountain.

We'll head first to the Mogao grottoes. Carved out of the cliffs 25 km southeast of Dunhuang, Gansu province, the Mogao Grottoes lay at a strategic point on the ancient Silk Road, where religion, culture and commerce between East and West intersected for 1,000 years from the 4th century until the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). It is listed as a world cultural heritage in 1987, and which is more and more world famous by its sculptures and murals.

Lunch cost is not included, but you may ask the guide to arrange a simple meal on the way or in a restaurant.

Next, we'll proceed to Sanwei mountain, which is 25 km away from Dunhuang city. It stretches more than 60 km and became famous for "the Buddha's light of Mogao Grottoes." It is an important religion resort in Dunhuang with both buddhist and Taoist constructions.
