Erdaoqiao, full of primitive style, with a wide waterway, accompanied by Mongolian yurts and expansive sand dunes, is a great place for photography. Particularly not to be missed is the Juyan Oasis, where you can find the largest, thickest, and oldest poplar tree in China, said to be the only one left after the Tuerhute people set fire to the forest over three hundred years ago.
Badanjilin Desert, located in the northern part of the Badain Jaran Desert, is the third largest desert in China. It is a combination of poplar forests and desert landscapes. It is about 23 kilometers from Dalaihubu Town and only a half hour drive from the county. This is an excellent place to capture desert sunrises and sunsets, designated as a camping site by the Ejina Government. It is a place where you can experience the desert and oasis atmosphere without venturing deep into the desert. Visitors can sandboard, ride camels, and see varied sand sculptures here. You can feel the rough and magnificent nature of the desert, especially during the golden desert sunrise and sunset.
The poplar is the earliest group of trees in the world, and is a "living fossil" of plants. The main root of a poplar can penetrate more than 100 meters in the ground. "Alive for a thousand years, not falling for a thousand years, falling and immortal for a thousand years" describes the life of a poplar forest. The dense and diverse poplar trees, along with the stunning life scenery and favorable lighting conditions, make it a paradise for photography enthusiasts. The scenic area is located in the arid Gobi desert, and visitors should be prepared for sun protection, wind protection, and sand protection throughout the year, bringing sunglasses, headscarves, lip balm, and other items.

Yulin Sea

The Juyan Lake is located in the northern part of Ejin Banner, Alxa League, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. It has a narrow and winding shape, resembling a crescent moon. The Ejin River flows into the lake, which is the main water source for Juyan Lake. "Juyan" is a term in Xiongnu language, translated as "weak water flowing sand" in the "Shuijingzhu". During the Han Dynasty, it was referred to as Juyanze, and in the Wei and Jin Dynasties, it was called the Western Sea. Since the Tang Dynasty, it has been known as Juyan Lake, and now it is called Swan Lake.
