Which Places You Should Visit in Yanqing County, Beijing

If you want see more about Beijing when do the tour around this area, let me show you someplace different. It is a pure area without hustling and bustling city or big tour group, it takes you to immerse yourself in peace and quiet. There's a unique place around Beijing distinguishing itself by being boundless and "deserted", without many souls to be seen. It is the Tianmo Desert, a desert near Beijing.

Tianmo Desert, which is the nearest desert in Beijing, about 70 Kilometers from Beijing city center(1 hour driving distance) and 25 Kilometers from Badaling Great Wall(30 mintues driving distance). This desert belongs to Huailai County, Hebei Province. It is still a mystery that how the desert formed. Historical tracks such as a huge mass of beacon towers, the Shanggu Relics and the ancient castles can be clearly seen. Winding its way through the mountains. We make sure that it's deeply loved by tourists.

In the past, people considered this is a hidden danger of suburban Beijing because of the Tianmo Desert was vast before. Many people worried that it may "invade" Beijing someday. Later, people began to bring the desert under control through planting trees, and therefore only two huge sand dragons were left today. Known by little, the broad desert, the setting sun and the dilapidated walls pictures such a magnificent landscape. The desert is threaded together with the Badaling Great Wall and the Kangxi Grassland, and forms a unique scenery line with the mountains, Gobi, deserts, lakes and ancient beacon towers.

The unique and charming natural sights of the Tianmo Desert makes it a best shooting location of scenery of Western China for both home and abroad. More than 300 films were shot here, including My Fair Princess, Armageddon, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Empero, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Journey to the West, The Country's Granary, The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate, etc. Served as both a tourist attraction and a shooting location, the small desert is divided into two parts, one acting as a desert tourist area, and the other a movie and television base.
