After an early winter snowfall, the Yueya Spring, a crescent-shaped lake lying in the middle of the deserts in northwest China's Gansu Province, has created a splendid view.
The snow scenery in the Mingsha Mountain and Yueya Spring, also known as the Crescent Spring, turned into a fairyland, attracting flocks of tourists from across China.
The Mingsha Mountain and Crescent Spring scenic spot has been one of the most famous scenic spots in Dunhuang City since the Han Dynasty (202 BC - 220 AD).
The Yueya Spring, surrounded by the Mingsha Mountains, has been a scenic wonder for a long time and is reputed to be the "First Spring in Sand".
Mingsha Mountain, also known as the "Echoing-Sand Mountain," got its name from the sound-making sands surrounding it.
