Charming attractions for every traveller

Xilamuren Grassland

Meaning the “Yellow Water” in Mongolian, the Xilamuren Grassland is located 90 kilometres north of Huhhot.

The weather here is cool, even in the summer. Visitors can ride camels, visit herdsmen’s homes, watch horse races and wrestling, and join evening parties held in the open air.

Xiangshawan (Resonant Sand Bay)

Xiangshawan is located in Dalate-Banner, 45 kilometres from the city of Baotou.

Sliding down from the 90-meter-high, 45-degree sand hill, one can supposedly hear the sound of car and aircraft engines, a natural and as yet inexplicable phenomenon.

Apart from sand sliding, one can also ride horses and camels, or ride on sand-sliding boats.
