Inner Mongolia grasslands

It was remote and wild, snow all over the roads and plains. Cold, bleak and beautiful.

While the tourist attractions were closed for the winter, it was still possible to get a guided tour. We also hired a driver and vehicle for a couple of days from Chifeng, and this gave us freedom.

We would love to go back and spend more time here - so much not yet explored

Autumn splendour

The majority of the grassland greenery has faded for the year. The last few dandelions are about to spread their seeds. There are only a few spots of greenery and flowers. The tranquility of a coming winter is setting in.

We went for a Beijing break to Wulan Butong by car (around 7h rise). You will see huge forest parks (must be fantastic in autumn) and are welcomed by the beauty of the grassland. There a lots of fun array took like horse riding - our kids enjoyed a lot. Keep in mind you need to bargain. At night you must try lamb BBQ. Would recommend a 3 days trip.

Very attractive grassland

This area of grassland in Inner Mongolia abuts onto another area of grassland and forest in Hebei province. Together, they form Saihanba National Forest Park.

Saihanba park consists of three areas: two in Hebei and one in Inner Mongolia. If travelling to see the grasslands, you are better coming here via Chengde in Hebei province rather than from Chifeng city in Inner Mongolia.

Wulan Buton Grasslands are visually distinct from rest of Saihanba park. The trees are much fewer and the grass more extensive. There are fewer tourist sites to visit than in the other two section of the part too. However, I'd say that is a good thing. If you want to experience the remote expanse of the grasslands without tourist touts and stalls selling tourist tat, then head to this part of Saihanba park. Stop your car somewhere at the side of the road and go walking out into the wilderness.

I visited the grasslands driving my own car. Really, to see this park, you need to come by car. The grasslands and forests here are huge. I mean, you can drive 50 km in any direction and still be inside Saihanba park. Only with a car, can you get out and experience the huge expanse of grasslands and forests. If you come here by tour bus, you'll just get dragged around a few tourist spots, populated by so many other noisy tourists, touts and stalls.

Wulan Buton Grasslands was included in the ticket price for Saihanba park. The tickets cost me 110 RMB per adult and are valid for 3 days in the park. There are checkpoints between the three main sections of the park where you have to show your ticket to proceed. Within the park, most scenic spots are free but a few do charge an additional entrance fee. My hotel suggested that these people charging fees might not be legitimate and we found that you could haggle the prices down to 10 RMB. We paid 30 RMB for my daughter to ride a horse for half an hour. The best part of the experience was when we parked in a remote spot, walked over the hill from the road, pitched our tent on the grass and had a picnic.

If you are keen on wildlife, there is a lot to be seen here. There is a great abundance of different kinds of flowers and plants. Squirrels and chipmunks are a common sight. I also spotted several kinds of birds that I hadn't seen before.

Made a road trip from Beijing. Took about 7 hours to drive up. Stayed in Wulan Butong town. Basic amenities (accommodations and restaurant) but rewarded by fall's beautiful palette. Rust to gold and every shade in between. Hired a guide with his trusty SUV. Kids had fun on the ATV and horse riding whilst I was more than satisfied taking photographs of the vast landscape and horses. Don't miss feasting on "yang-rou-chuan" - grilled lamb skewers.

A bit disappointing
Sep 2013 • Couples
We went to this grasslands on September, which is a bad idea since the grass has already dried out and has been collected to feed the animals, everybody told us it is much better on July and early August. But still, the place is very tourist, with expensive tickets, "grass slides", horse riding, horse cars, and cement Mongolian yurts. To get there we hired a car with driver for one day to go and back from JingPeng (经棚) for 300RMB, and once there we were glad not to spend the night in Wulan Butong. Actually the best of the visit was the landscape we came across on the way to get there, in Fall the forests are yellow and red and it is really beautiful. It is very recommended to have your own transport, I thought it would be very nice to go by bicycle.
