The Gobi Desert
is dangerous and dry. There is a little water, but is rare, and an
oasis is very rare.
The Taklamakan Desert,
China's other desert, is the second largest desert in the world. It's
nickname is the Sea of Death. Sand storms whip up
frequency, and without warning. The days are boiling hot. The nights
are freezing cold. The snake are poisonous. There is little hope of
water. Crossing the Taklamakan is dangerous and can be deadly. It is
one of China natural barriers. You can see why!
