Experience the desert
Apr 2018 • Friends
There are three separate activity sections. We took the glass enclosed gondola to reach section 3 in the desert area, then onto a retrofitted military vehicle to reach the entrance of the activity center. We opted for an additional 300 RMB to ride the camel and to attend an hour of cultural song and dance performance. The return journey from the exit back to the gondola ride was by a tourist train. We enjoyed the short camel ride, the view of the desert and the round trip ride to the entrance of the activity center.

Camel & ATV riding in the desert
Oct 2017 • Friends
For a company outing, we went camel and ATV riding. Not everyone for camel riding though. After meeting the camel, one of our members (the youngest of our group) opted out and decided to wait on an ATV while the rest of us went on our ride on the double-hump camels. The camels seemed to be very well trained, and all we had to do is hang on. My camel had very bad breath. The difficult part is the mounting and dismounting. Other than those who came with high boots, we put about 20-inch high leggings over our footwear.

This was my third time camel riding. I’ve previously ridden camels around the pyramids of Giza.

Excellent adventure experience
Oct 2017 • Friends
Excellent adventure experience, you can ride camel, ATV, jump from the tower and do sandboard. However, there is few food and drink sales here. You should bring it by your own.

Amazing Desert Fun
Jun 2016
I was staying in Hohhot and wanted to see the desert so I took the train to Baotou where I had some friends who took me by car to Yinkentala. It is about an hour and a half drive from Baotou. There no buses that go there that I am aware of but I suspect you can hire a car (or a taxi as far as that goes) from any of the hotels in Baotou. From the ticket office you get on a ski lift that takes you out across the desert. Some people wore leggings over their shoes to keep the sand from getting into their socks, others wore scarfs over their face to keep from getting sunburned. It takes about 20 minutes to arrive at the activity center. At the activity center you can ride camels, ride ATVs, ride in specially equipped vehicles to tour the desert (they look like old military personnel carriers), ride motorcycles and/or go sliding down sand dunes. It truly is a very unique experience and I recommend you go out of your way to try this
