Travel Tips: Huitengxile Grassland is very cold and will be closed from October of the year. During the winter time, we suggest you visit Xilamuren Grassland instead.

Good to Know: There are three famous grasslands near Hohhot, including Xilamuren Grassland, Gegentala Grassland (140 km) and Huitengxile Grassland (135 km). The itinerary could be tailor-made according to your preference.

The sunrise on the grassland is one of the greatest marvelous spectacles in nature. If you don't want to miss the chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery on the grassland, you’d better get up early in the morning. Watch sunrise and see everything turns brighter and brighter.

After breakfast, enjoy some free time to walk around and breathe some fresh air. It will be a fantastic morning before you transfer back to Hohhot. After getting back to Hohhot, pay a visit to Dazhao Temple, the largest and most famous Tibetan Buddhism shrine in Hohhot. It also boasts the impressive buildings, a large collection of religious and cultural relics, among which the silver statue of Buddha, dragon sculpture and frescos are the most cherished treasures. Afterwards, continue a trip to Five-pagoda Temple. Originally built in ancient Indian style, it is one of the only remaining parts of the Ci Deng Temple compound located in the Old City of Hohhot.

Later, be escorted to Inner Mongolia Museum. With a collection of 44,000 objects, the museum displays the unique ethnic history of Northern Tribes. This museum is a window to know Inner Mongolia deeply.

Hello Johnson,

Thanks for asking. Overall it was a very nice experience. And Jerry did a fine job. It’s nice to be taken care of someone who is enthusiastic about showing strangers around in his country.

Well I don’t know if he is but we learned a lot from him.

Later more, when I have more time, we may want to do another mountain tour somewhere else later on

Me and my Wife (both of us living in Shanghai) wanted to get away from the city during Christmas, but due to Covid-19, options was limited. After talking to Johnson on China discovery, we had booked a fantastic 10 days trip through the yellow mountains and Guilin.

Johnson was fantastic with helping us, both when we changed our minds on elements of the trip, and when we forgot our passport at home before leaving for the trip. Everything was well planned and we felt safe and taken care of the whole trip.

Especially our “local mountain guide” April was fantastic, even introducing us to friends and tea tasting on Christmas Eve!

We are already planning two more trips with China discovery!

Hi Zeva,

Lijiang was lovely.

The driver is wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, so after I checked in he brought me to Songzanlin Monastery.

I'm enjoying the Monastery.
