Crescent Moon Spring is shaped like a crescent moon, and its clear water is surrounded by grass

Crescent Moon Spring is near the northern foot of Mingsha Hill in the southern suburbs of Dunhuang City. It is shaped like a crescent moon, and its clear water is surrounded by grass. It is said that when the wind blows the sand, none of it falls in the spring water. When the Dragon Boat Festival falls on the 5th day of the fifth lunar month, people usually climb up onto Mingsha Hill to view Yueya Spring. This has become a local custom.
