It’s an ideal place to relax away from modern day pressure thanks to the magnificent natural beauty of e.g. the Xilamuren Grasslands and Kubuqi Desert. The best time to visit the grassland is in summer and autumn. At this time of year, the pleasant climate, the blue sky and white clouds, the rolling grass, the wandering flocks and herds, the passionate herdsmen and their Mongolian food will undoubtedly leave you with a deep impression. The Kubuqi Desert, meaning “bowstring” in Mongolian, lies to the south of the Yellow River like a long band extending about 400 kilometers from east to west. Generally, the sand dunes are 10-15 meters high and the moving dunes make up 80% of the total area of the Kubuqi Desert

Today you will go to Dazhao Temple. This is the earliest temple in Hohhot with a history of over 400 years. The temple is entirely patterned after Chinese temples except for the main hall, which is patterned after a Tibetan Lama temple. In the middle of the Buddha hall sits a silver Buddha statute, which provides Dazhao Temple with its alternative name of Silver Buddha Temple.

    Inner Mongolian Museum, it was founded on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, in 1957. The museum in particular offers an insight into the history and traditions of the Mongolian people exhibiting paraphernalia used by nomadic Mongols, including saddles, costumes, archery and polo equipment and a Ger (yurt).

    Xilamuren, which means "yellow water" in Mongolian, is also known as Zhaohe.Xilamuren Grassland is the nearest grassland tourist attraction to Hohhot and the earliest one in Inner Mongolia. The average temperature in summer season is about 18℃-21℃. The grassland has rolling hills and lush green grass. On the riverside of Xilamuren lies a Lama temple which was built in 1769 in the Qing Dynasty. This Lama temple had been used as a temporary abode for the Six Living Buddha in the Xilizhao Temple to spend summers. The main hall, gateway and the east and west wing-rooms remain intact up to now.

    You will be accommodated in a Mongolian yurt (called also Ger). The yurt is a portable tent used by Central Asian nomads. They are designed to be easy to take apart, transport, and reconstruct. Despite this portability, they are warm enough to keep the coldest winter temperatures at bay and strong enough to withstand strong winds and the demands of a whole family. The yurt is a circular structure built using a wooden, accordion frame that can be easily taken down, made compact for carrying, and reassembled. On this frame are placed three to four layers of felt, traditionally made from sheep’s wool, and an outer layer of waterproof canvas. The felt and canvas are secured to the wooden frame and the resulting structure can stand securely in one place for months or even years at a time.

    The splendid Kubuqi Desert means bowstring in the Inner Mongolian dialect. Backed by the Kubuqi Desert, the dunes assume a crescent shape with a height of 110 meters and gradient of 45 degrees.It received its name from the echoing "Shhhh" that the sand makes as you step on the surface.It's said that the noise of sliding sand, after which the place is named, was thought by Marco Polo to be demons seeking to lure travelers to their death. Tourists there can try camel rides, parasailing, sliding the dunes or simply building sand castles.

Whether this is true or not, the mausoleum remains a sacred place with great significance for Mongolian people.
