Lop Nur or Lop Nor is a former salt lake in China, now largely dried-up, located in the southeastern portion of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China. The area covers tens of hundreds of square kilometers, with a number of unknown beautiful spots, and rarely-seen scenery. It looks just like an alien planet. The place was an important passage for the ancient Silk Road. It mainly consists of Yadan geomorphologic landscapes formed by wind erosion. I create this photo by making the Gobi Desert as the background and set the model in the front.
