Golden Sands of the Singing Dune

On the right bank of the Ili River, in the Altyn-Emel National Park, there is a natural phenomenon - the Singing Dune. In dry weather, you can hear the melodious sounds from the sand dunes that resemble organ playing.Legend says that these are the melodies of spirits of the desert, but scientists have other opinion. Observations showed that the greater the moving mass of sand, the louder the sand dune sounds — slide down from the dunes, and the sound will become more expressive.The sand dune was formed as a result of blowing sand from the shoals of the Ili River. Singing sand dunes are also found in only few places in the world: the city of Tarfaya (Morocco), in the Namib Desert (Africa), in Wales (England), near the Dunhun Oasis (China) and in the Nevada Desert (USA).On the excursion we will walk along the very crest of the dune and take a ride from the dune, making it sing louder!
