It is bound to the north by the Gobi and to the East by Mount Lang which separates it from the Ulan Buh Desert.The Badain Jaran Desert is well known for its numerous scattered and colorful lakes. Containing more than 140 lakes they are mainly found in the southern region in the desert. The Badain Jaran Desert is made up of hundreds of dunes ranging from small to large. Most of the megadunes in the desert average about 400 meters from the base while the rest average around 200 meters. Out of all the megadunes, the Bilutu Peak (b¨¬ l¨³ t¨² f¨¥ng) is the most famous. It towers at 500 meters from the base and is the tallest dune in Asia (third tallest in the world).
