Dunhuang Travel Guide

Dunhuang is a city in China’s northwestern Gansu Province, on the edge of the Gobi Desert. Once a frontier garrison on the Silk Road, it’s known today for the Mogao Caves, a complex of 492 grottoes adorned with Buddhist statuary and frescoes. Carved into the cliffs above the Dachuan River, the caves were created between the 4th and the 14th centuries.

The Dunhuang Museum displays manuscripts and carvings discovered at the Mogao Caves. Stalls at the local night market sell street food, jade carvings and other handicrafts. The White Horse Pagoda is a Buddhist monument built in the 4th century. South of the city at Crescent Lake oasis, Dunhuang Folk Museum has exhibits on local culture. Visitors can explore the nearby Singing Sand Mountains (sand dunes) on camels or in 4x4s. Around 80 kilometers from Dunhuang, the Han dynasty ruins at Yumenguan Pass include crumbling remnants of the Great Wall.

The city was founded by Emperor Wudi of the Han dynasty in 111 BC at the crossroads of two trading routes on the Silk Road, and the name ‘Dunhuang‘, meaning to ‘to flourish and prosper,’ gives some indication of the town’s prominence in ancient China. It is much less important today.

Buddhism reached China via the Silk Road and this is one of the more important Buddhist sites on that route. The Tangut or Western Xia ruled a substantial kingdom in the area, with its capital at Yinchuan, for centuries until the Mongol conquest in the 1200s. They were the main sponsors of Buddhist construction at Dunhuang.

Best time to visit Dunhuang

Dunhuang has an arid desert climate, with cold winters (Dec–Feb) and hot summers (Jun–Aug). Peak season for visitors to the city as well as nearby Mogao Caves is May–Oct.
