Huitengxile Grassland

Huitengxile Grassland means “cold plateau” in Mongolian“, which is 135 kilometers from Hohhot the capital of Inner Mongolia.

As one of the world’s three largest alpine meadows, Huitengxile Grassland, at an altitude of 2,100 meters, is renowned for its magnificent steppe scenery, 99 natural lakes, Yellow Flowers Valley, and wind farms.

The climate here is unique, with the highest temperature in the summer at around 20 degrees Celsius, making it an unparalleled place to escape from the weather.

Every year from May to September, the blooming flowers and vigorous grass transform the grassland into a beautiful oil painting.

Horseback riding, camel riding, shooting, archery, and Mongolian wrestling, are daytime activities. Alternatively, one can hike up Aobao Mountain or visit the yurt of a Mongolian herdsman.

When night falls, sitting around the campfire, you can taste the mellow flavor of horse milk wine and Mongolian milk tea, and quietly listen to the herdsmen singing cheerfully.
