For ordinary tourists, going to Kumutag Desert is to visit Kumutag Desert Park, which is the most convenient place to visit in the desert. There are many amusement projects in the park, such as sand skating, desert motocross and so on.
Actually, there are two hiking trails in the KMU Tate desert. One is from the desert park to the balustrade Township, which is about 10 kilometers away, and it can be completed in one day.
Another is from the desert park across to the southwest of the desert village of Dikaner, more than 40 kilometers, also known as the North-South crossing, because the sand road is difficult to walk on, it takes about three days to complete, and the requirement of fitness is greater.
