The Badain Jaran Desert is a desert in China which spans the provinces of Gansu, Ningxia and Inner Mongolia. It covers an area of 49,000 sq. kilometers. By size it is the third largest desert in China.This desert is home to some of the tallest stationary dunes on Earth. Some reaching a height of more than 500 meters. Its tallest dune is also measured, from base to peak, as the world's third tallest dune and highest stationary dune in the world.The desert also features over 100 spring-fed lakes that lie between the dunes, some of which are fresh water while others are extremely saline. These lakes give the desert its name which is Mongolian for "mysterious lakes".


The Kumtag Desert is a section of the Taklamakan Desert which lies east-southeast of the Desert of Lop. It is bordered by Dunhuang in the east, Tian Shan in the north, and with an area of 22,800 square kilometers. A noticeable feature of the Kumtag is the presence of large accumulations of drift-sand, especially along the foot of the crumbling desert ranges, where it rises into dunes sometimes as much as 250 feet in height and climbs half-way up the flanks of ranges themselves.
