Shapotou lies 20 kilometers to the west of Zhongwei City, where the waters of the Yellow River slice through the endless expanse of the Tengger Desert. The contrast of the vast Tengger Desert with the ever-flowing Yellow River is an extraordinary sight. Here, you can visit a naturally occurring “sand slide” and slide down a 100-meter-high sand dune. Alternatively, you can float on the Yellow River on an ancient form of transportation: a goatskin boat! If you’re brave enough, cross the river on the zip-line connecting the two banks and experience the thrill of soaring through the open air over the roiling Yellow River. Of course, no trip to the desert is complete without a camel ride.
