When we visited they were busy constructing a walkway around the walls to stop damage. However all the activity did no to inspire us to investigate the walls close up. What we did do is climb up the very long set of steps to a viewing platform at the top. The views are well worth the climb, and we got good photos of the walls from the elevated angle as well. There are a set of toilets in the main part of the town as you drive in, but despite it being peak tourist season, they were all locked. The town felt deserted but it is a popular destination for Chinese tourists with cars.

We climbed up the long stairways to get to the top to have a great view of the village. You get to see animals on the vast grassland too. It is an ancient castle of the western Han Dynasty. Great views!

If you are traveling to the grasslands it is worth to stop here and see an ancient village- with walls from the Han Dynasty (2000 years old) surrounding a small town. The buildings inside the town are nothing special, very modern in appearance, but the walls are the attraction. There is a huge staircase built on a hill to the north of the town where you can get a panoramic view of the town and the surrounding White Cliff Mountains.

Trying not to be too obnoxious as a tourist to a living working community of nomadic tibetans, I first climbed the lookout built behind the town recently for a spectacular view of the cliffs, the town and the grassland valley. Then went for a little walk around the town saying hello to everyone. They showed me a place to climb up the wall, clearly at my own peril, so I scrambled up and took a few snaps. The walls are 2,000 years old. This is a nomadic community so I'm the winter the town is full, but when I came in the summer it's mostly elderly and children, everyone else is out on the grasslands with the herds. Really quiet, really intimate view of life here. Don't miss it!

We went to the Ganjia Grassland for a two day tour with one night stop in Baijio Village, an old Chinese village, now inhabited by Tibetans.
We also went to the Tseway Gompa temple a Bon Temple in Zuohai village, about 10 km away from Baijio Village. Here we saw the most beautiful statue of Sherab Chamma, “loving mother of compassion, sometimes called the mother of all buddha’s. We were allowed the attend the afternoon prayers in the central prayer hall with all “throat singing”, mantra’s, trantra’s and monks going into trance, horns and cymbals, the lo. Not to be missed!
You can also do nice walks in the neighbouring hills . Views are stunning, easy walk
