There is a review below from 2011, that says everything. It is a good experience, my kid loved, we are glad we made it... But it is for only once and I would suggest a very long day leaving early and coming back late night to Hohhot. In case you decide to stay, don't think twice to get the "luxurious"... More

Granted, I guess I didn't go during the best time. Winter in Inner Mongolia was only just over, and the grass was only just beginning to grow, so we'd still see brown patches on the ground. That was all fine though; the vastness of the Xilamuren Grasslands is still some sight to behold. Also, don't expect to see countless herds... More

This is the nearest grassland attraction 2 hours journey from Hohhot by bus,when reaching the grassland you will see lots of modern Mongolian yurts scattered all over the vast grassland catered for tourist. Nowadays many nomads are no longer living in the yurt because there has been a transition of their living,yurt to brick house and raising of cattle to... More

Open spaces, overgrazed grass, good views, neat sunset, spectacular dawn.. Lack-luster entertainment in camp however.

My partner and I travelled with another couple (friends of ours) to Inner Mongolia, and we wanted to make our own route and travel without joining a tour. We wanted to pay a driver to take us around the places we wanted to go for 3 days. We were referred to a company by Holiday Inn (where we stayed for... More

The grasslands were really quite beautiful but the locals running the place are so desperate to make a quick buck out of everything that it somehow spoils the atmosphere. We arrived at around 2pm from Hohhot and weather during the end of August is fairly pleasant, lots of sunshine and warm weather of about 25 degrees maximum during the day... More

Like many chinese I was expecting to see the big prairies as shown in the TV soap called "Gengishan". Due to development of the city apparently whoever left on the grassland are no longer nomad but people who are investing in mass tourism. The only attraction in the location is a Yurt for praying. The situation of greens are more... More

Xilamuren Is easily accessible by road from Hohhot and the drive is very pleasant. The grasslands itself was a bit disappointing. It stretches beyond your line of vision but it is not lush. The yurts are tacky and very touristy. Mongolian cuisine is interesting and the quality of meat is very good. The horses are not always well trained and... More

I was here in June 2006. From Huhhot it was about 2 hours drive (with 1 stop) if I remembered correctly. I stayed for 1 nite at the Xilamuren grasslands. It was great and the air was so fresh. No wonder the Mongolian singers have such good voices. I really missed the scenery, the friendly locals and the unique food.... More
