Ningxia– I’ve always wanted to travel and explore the world. But it came as a surprise to me when I am told by our interpreters that we will be going to a desert here.
They dubbed the region as an “oasis beyond the Great Wall”, and indeed it could be so much fun and adventure beyond the Great Wall.
You don’t need to travel to the Arabian Peninsula to experience some adventure activities in a desert here. We were treated to first to a bumpy, exciting ride on a military open truck that traversed the fine sand dunes. The truck driven a soldier — clad in camouflage uniform — stepped on the gas hard, possibly beyond 60km/hour as it went on a zig zag on the desert.
With a chopper hovering around the desert, our military truck ride climbed some slopes before going down steep areas giving us thumps in our hearts.
“Awwwwwww! Ohhhhhh!,” most of us yelled, holding tighter on the steel handles in our seats.
Just fly to Shanghai & take a connecting flight to Ningxia to experience this one hell of a adventure!
