Volcan Calbuco(Chile)

In the spring of 1900 the Swedish explorer Sven Anders Hedin was surveying the area west of Lop Nur (Uygur Autonomous Region in modern China). One night his Uygur guide, Ardik, went back to their former base camp to fetch a missing pick, and lost his way in a rising sandstorm. Moving by dim moonlight, the Uygur guide found the lost pick and then discovered the ruins of a huge Buddhist pagoda, some half-buried wooden beams decorated with exquisite carvings and copper coins spread in the sand.
