Xilamuren Grassland


Xilamuren grassland: Xilamuren, meaning "yellow river" in Mongolian, is located 100 kilometers north of Hohhot. Xilamuren Prairie, commonly known as Taihe, got its name from the Puhui Temple, a Lama temple built in the Qing Dynasty near the Xilamuren River. Constructed in 1769 during the reign of Emperor Qianlong, Puhui Temple was initially a resort of the Sixth Panchen Lama of Xilitu of Huhhot. With engraved beams and pictured purlins, the temple appears quite splendid.Xilamuren Prairie, a typical example on the plateau, is covered by green grass and fresh flowers every summer and autumn. Due to the continual investment of the local government, reception service is growing better and better. Thus, Xilamuren has become a popular scenic spot in Inner Mongolia.

Ao Bao: The most common and grand sacrificial activity of the Mongolians is the sacrificing of Aobao. Aobao means heaps of stones. Aobao is normally set up in hills and mountains, it is a cone-shaped solid tower made of stone.A long pole is inserted on the top, fur or animal skin and cloth ribbons are tied on the pole end, rocks for incense are placed around.Sacrificing of Aobao is mostly held in each June, July and August. When sacrificing, the worshipper will take Hadas,mutton, fermented milk and dairy food to the Aobao. Hadas and sacrifices will be presented firstly and Lamas will chant Buddhist scriptures and the other people will worship on bended knees.

Kubuqi Desert

Resonant Sand Gorge

The Kubuqi Desert: It is one of China's eight largest deserts. Its rainfall reaches no more than around 250mm. Strong wind and spreading sand along with sparse vegetation make it an incurable cancer of the earth.Engebei means peace, luck in Mongol. It's located in the middle stretch of the Kubuqi desert. It's where the Mongol people had lived in the past time one generation after another, where green grass thrived, livestock fed in herds, and incense from temples hang around. However, human activities such as aggressive reclamation, overuse of land for grazing , plus historical wars, were later inflicted on this weak ecosystem and eventually turned it into a sand land. People living on it were forced to migrate.
