We left this confluence point to reach another desert close to the river because we had to hurry back to Wuhai.
When we went back to the car after taking a few more pictures, we discovered that we were about to embark on yet another desert adventure! Even after a couple of attempts, the door remained locked and did not open. There was complete chaos during that time. The walkie-talkie remained in the vehicle, and neither of our phones had any signal at all. We didn’t know where to go next. But then something good happened. We attempted to unlock the door with our hand after the door’s left window was shattered.
After this brief excursion was over, we prepared to drive back to the Wuhai Grand Skylight Hotel, where we had stayed on our first day, with good results. Our thrilling tour of the Mongolian desert came to an end in a setting that had the air of a beautiful painting.
