The Crescent Spring is nearly 100 meters long from north to south and 25 meters wide from east to west. The spring water is deep in the east and shallow in the west, and the deepest part is about 5 meters. It is curved like a crescent moon, hence the name, "the first spring in the desert". It has been since the Han Dynasty As one of the "Eight Scenic Spots of Dunhuang", it was listed as a national scenic spot in 1994.
Crescent Moon Springs grow with eyegrass and chara plants, and there are dense reeds on the south bank, surrounded by quicksand, although the spring is not covered by sand despite strong winds. It has become a spectacle because "the spring reflects the moon without dust" and "the ancient sand does not fill the spring, and the spring does not run out". Mingsha Mountain and Crescent Spring are twin sisters in the Gobi Desert. There is a feeling of "Mingsha Mountain is pleasant, and Crescent Spring washes the heart".
Crescent Spring is the outstanding one among the many natural landscapes in Dunhuang. It has been known throughout the world as the "desert spectacle" and is known as "one of the most beautiful scenery outside the Great Wall". The Crescent Spring, the nine-story building of Mogao Grottoes and the artistic landscape of Mogao Grottoes are integrated into one. They are the "three miracles" connected in the south of Dunhuang City, and they have become tourist destinations that Chinese and even the world people yearn for.
