Khongor Sand Dunes are the largest and most spectacular sand dunes in Mongolia. Also known as the ‘singing dunes’, they are up to 800 m high, 20 km wide and about 100 km long. Top of the dunes can be climbed and the views of the desert from the top are indescribable.


I was wondering around and enjoying the majestic views of dunes when my eyes spotted this beautiful play of shadow and light with blowing sand over the dunes and with sun shining through the flying sand.


It is slightly different desert photo than we are used to but I am very happy with the artistic results it creates, even I've originally went there for very typical sunrise desert photos.
