Mogao Caves

I reserved the second day in Dunhuang to explore the Mogao Caves, popularly known as Caves of the Thousand Buddhas. These caves were founded in the fourth century by a monk named Yuejun. Following his example, other monks excavated caves on the cliff, most of which are decorated with beautiful frescos. The most comfortable way to travel to Turpan is on board the night train that, for a reasonable price, allows you to sleep in a cabin with first class bunk beds.
