One of the great mysteries in the history is the disappearance of the ancient city of Loulan. The city was located in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in China. Like Pompeii in ancient Rome which drowned in a sea of volcanic ash, Loulan, a once beautiful city, transformed into a barren and perilous desert landscape.This inexplicable event has whetted the curiosity of archaeologists and other scientists over the years, and it has been categorized as one of the top ten unsolved mystery of the world.Loulan was established as a kingdom in 176 B.C. and flourished for over 800 years. The city was like an oasis traversed by a limpid river and situated next to a bountiful lake. The city had a huge population including soldiers guarding the safety of the kingdom. Many residents made a living fishing and hunting.
Bordering the Chinese heartland, the Kingdom of Loulan became the first stop for the Silk Road, and prospered from the trade. Artifacts already excavated from Loulan are many and diverse and include ancient coins, lacquerware, bronze mirrors, pottery, glassware, jewelry and woolen fabrics in Han, Greek and Roman styles.As one of the major stops on the old Silk Road, the city was a center for the trading among Europe, Central Asia, and ancient China.In short, the kingdom was booming economically while serving as a peaceful and paradisiacal environment for its citizens and visitors.
However, the flourishing city of Loulan was curiously abandoned and transformed into a desert wasteland in the 3rd century the by the time around 618 – 907 A.D.,it had fallen into oblivion and never mentioned in the history again until its rediscovery in the 20th century, when archaeologists uncovered the ruins of administrative buildings, residential dwellings, and Buddhist pagodas, as well as numerous artifacts.Many hypotheses have been put forward to explain its abandonment, including climatic or environmental changes, an epidemic, a war of conquest, or the opening of the northern route of the Silk Road which diverted most of the trade traffic away from Loulan.
To this day, the terrain is barely navigable and there are severe weather fluctuations. The region is extremely arid and continues to be subjected to frequent wind and sand storms. Conditions are so harsh that the area has become known as " The Sea of Death.
