Photography Tips

If the sand hits the dune, make sure to have a high shutter speed so you can freeze the moment. Furthermore, underexpose a bit so you don't loose the highlights of the flying sand.

Travel Information

You can drive there from several points. Easiest and fastest is from Bayandalai. Make sure to have a proper 4x4 car (recommended) and be experienced with driving in sandy conditions. Otherwise, you can book yourself a tour or a car with a driver. Entrance is around 2,50 EUR. Card is accepted.

Hiking up that sand dune will take about 1 hour. Take breaks and take enough water. This will be very tiring.
