Tengger Desert
Shapotou is a small village in the Ningxia province, sandwiched between the sand dunes of the Tengger Desert and the Yellow River. It is a quiet and very pleasant place to stay.

The small mountain village Beichangtai has the last operational water wheel. We made the way back to Shapotou by an 5 hours leather raft on the Yellow River.
