Xilamuren Grassland

Located 100 kilometers north of Hohhot, Xilamuren means "Yellow River" in Mongolian language. It is also called Zhaohe, because a Lama temple (Tuzhao) was built in the Qing Dynasty near the Xilamuren River. Xilamuren Grassland is the first grassland tourist attraction opened to the public in Hohhot.

It is better to visit the grassland in summer and autumn because it is covered by green grass and colorful flowers at that time. It is nice to spend one night or two here in a Mongolian traditional yurt. In the past, they were made of wood thick and furnished by blankets, low beds, quilts and pillows, which were originally designed to fold up easily then carried by camel. However, nowadays most of them are more solidly and built on yards that made of concrete. If you would like to stay in the yurts for night, you will have a true experience of being a Mongol.
