Xilamuren Grassland


Xilamuren, which means "yellow water" in Mongolian, is also known as Zhaohe. Xilamuren Grassland, 90 km north of Hohhot, is the nearest grassland to Hohhot and the earliest tourist attraction opened in Inner Mongolia. The average temperature in summer season is about 18℃-21℃. Blue sky, white clouds, rolling hills, lush green grass and wandring flocks and herds have made it an attractive place for people to stay in summer.

On the riverside of Xilamuren lies a Lama temple which was built in 1769 in the Qing Dynasty. This Lama temple was used as a temporary abode for the 6th Living Buddha in the Xilizhao Temple to spend summers. The main hall, gateway and the east and west wing-rooms remain intact till now.

The Nadam Fair at Inner Mongolian grassland holds in each summer, starting from the 6th of June on Chinese Lunar Calendar, and lasting for 3-10 days accordingly. During the fair, the whole grassland is throbbing with excitement and full of activities. Mongolian herdsmen are fond of three main skills: wrestling, horse racing and archery.

Tourists can experience a great many activities, such as living in a yurt, a camp fire party, singing and dancing and watch camel racing, horse racing, and wrestling. They can even take part in some of the competitions you are interested in.
