GeoEye High Resolution Imagery - The adventure of a lifetime! The Takla Makan Desert is China's largest desert, situated in the middle of the Tarim Basin in Xinjiang Province. It is one of the largest 'shifting-sand' deserts in the world. Travel by caravan, camel or bicycle to discover towering sand dunes, lost cities, the remains of ancient forests and post-fluvial riverbeds hiding amidst the hauntingly beautiful desert vistas. GeoEye-1 .50-meter resolution collected 6 October 2009.
