About 100 years ago, the desert town of Kolmanskop in Namibia once flourished, but now it has become a "ghost" town and is gradually submerged by desert sand.
Kolmanskop is a "ghost town" in the Namib desert in southern Namibia. This place is small but used to be a very famous diamond.
After discovering this area full of diamonds, hundreds of "hunters" from Germany focused on Kolmanskop, making remote areas prosper.
Kolmanskop is built in the architectural style of a German town, with full facilities and play areas such as casino, cinema, swimming pool, ballroom, power plant, ice factory, .
The town began to decline after the First World War, the time when the diamonds were exhausted.
Finally, in 1954 Kolmanskop became a desolate "ghost" town when a German architect and the last resident left town.
After decades of abandonment, houses are being encroached by sand.
The sand flows into the interior of the houses, creating a wild and cold landscape.
A house was submerged by sand near flooded doors.
"Ghost" houses are full of secrets.
In recent years, Kolmanskop town has become a great attraction for tourists.
The town was also chosen by the directors as a backdrop for many popular movies.
