Xialamuren Steppe

Xialamuren Steppe is located 90km (60 miles) north of Hohhot. This area of grassland is the most popular with tourists visiting Inner Mongolia and trips can be arranged to allow you to spend 2 or 3 days on the steppes staying overnight in yurts, and perhaps enjoying horse riding, archery, wrestling, throat singing and all manner of traditional Mongolian pursuits. Temperatures are cool even in summer and it is best to visit in July and August when the grass is at its highest.
