Mogao Caves Pictures

The Mogao Caves are one of four largest grottoes in China along with Maiji Caves in Tianshui, Longmen Grottoes in Luoyang and Yungang Grottoes in Datong. They are set into a cliff-face of Echoing Sand Mountain about 25km southeast of Dunhuang. This honeycomb of caves was constructed over a millennium, from the 4th to the 14th centuries, and represents the height of Buddhist art and the world's richest treasure house of Buddhist sutras, murals and sculptures.

Well, as I know, it's not so convenient for the people to use wheelchairs in Mogao Caves and some of the attractions in Xinjiang.

1. Yes, you are correct. November is the low season of scenic areas in Dunhuang.
2. According to the previous statistics, the temperature may range from -6C to 8C during that period. It will be ok for you to visit there. Don't worry. Just prepare some warm clothes in order to adapt large diurnal temperature difference.
3. Yes, you can purchase the tickets at the ticket counter when you arriving there in November.

Have a nice trip!

Hello anybody there? answering my question please.
Answered by Tilly | Dec. 26, 2012 03:16

That's right. There is a railway station as you mentioned. It is not far from the downtown. But there is no connecting trains between the train station and Turpan. Therefore, if you wanna go to Turpan, the best way is to take a train at Liuyuan.

From Jiayuguan, actually there are direct connecting trains to Dunhuang. The train schedule can be searched in the website:

Is there any train from Urumqui to Dunhuang on October?

Is it better to go by bus or by train from Dunhuang to Jiayuguan?

How is the scenery? Is it worth it to go during day time
Thank you

Yes, there is a train daily from Urumqi to Dunhuang at 18:57, the train would arrive at 10:41, I think the scenery will be worth seeing but most of the trip is in night time.
