The Flam­ing Moun­tains are bar­ren, eroded, red sand­stone hills in the Xin­jiang Uygur au­tonomous re­gion. They lie near the north­ern rim of the Tak­la­makan Desert. Their strik­ing gul­lies and trenches caused by ero­sion of the red sand­stone be­drock give the moun­tains a flam­ing ap­pear­ance at cer­tain times of the day. The best time to visit is from June to Oc­to­ber. Au­gust is the best month as it is har­vest time for lo­cal fruits, es­pe­cially grapes.
