CHINA has a number of mysterious pyramids hidden in the overgrown countryside, reportedly "guarded by the military" to prevent them being probed, but experts think they could be key to understanding more about the country's ancient history.
The skeleton of the tallest mummy discovered so far is about 2.3 meters, and the coffin is about 2.8 meters long, but medical experts say the man may have been even taller when he was alive. In addition to features similar to those of ancient Europeans, such as blond hair and high cheekbones, many of the mummies or skeletons have large frames, more than 2 meters tall," said the 40-year-old, who was one of the first experts to explore the site in 2003 at the request of local farmers.
Yuesha Island (t 悦沙島, s 悦沙岛, Yuèshādǎo) is the location of the resort's sandcastles and sand art, both those made by tourists and a large gallery of major works, the Desert Palace of Fine Arts. There are more children's, soccer, and volleyball areas, as well as swimming pools, the Rainbow Theater, and professional gymnastic, acrobatic, and hiphop performances. A "desert beach" area includes beach umbrellas and space for sun and sandbathing during the day and stargazing at night. There are camel caravans to the Xiansha Island area to the east; to the south, the miniature train reaches Xiangshawan Port and the Liansha Island area. The train also passes by an outdoor performance exhibiting traditional Mongolian life on the steppe.
There are burnt out cars and planes around some of the symbols, further fuelling speculation about a sinister military purpose.
