Flaming Mountain

Flaming mountains: General Introduction

The Flaming Mountains are so named because in the evenings the red clay mountains reflect the heat and glow of the desert and seem to burn. Situated on the northern edge of Turpan Basin, and stretching over 100 kilometers long and 10 kilometers wide, this is an intensely hot part of the desert without a single blade of grass to be seen for miles. In the severe heat of July, the mountains seem to be on fire in the burning sun and become a purplish-brown color. Hot stream rises upwards from the burning cliffs and it is no surprise that this is where the hottest temperatures inChina ever were recorded.
