Firstly the time from Baotou is around 90 minutes by taxi approx 250 -300 RMB
A guide is 200RMB and entrance fee is 160 RMB lovely walk up to temples or you can take buggies
Whatever way you choose you still have to navigate steps
I found after 3 or 4 temples pretty much all the same got a bit bored nice to see but gengis Khan mausoleum better value

Where can I start! This place is beautiful and peaceful with lots of history! You MUST visit this if you are in Inner Mongolia. You will not regret it. It’s lots of walking so make sure to wear comfortable shoes!

Worth seeing..
Apr 2018
Drive up to the monastery which isn’t far from Baotou. The process to enter is painful and typically Chinese but once in their is plenty to see. Shuttle buses move you around with ease. Translators are available at extra cost. Well worth visiting for a morning...

This is peaceful place with beautiful scene. You should go to the hill for sightseeing. The monastery will close from 06 PM so you should go to there in morning.

A place to know Buddhism
Jun 2017 • Family
Am not a Buddhist but simply follow the tour group according to the itinerary.
There are lots of walking up the slopes and stairs and definitely not for the weak hearted. Need to drink lots of water for climbing up.
Many temples are present on the way up and down. Many stories and explanations are given by the tour facilitator, all about the spread and influence of Buddhism and its culture around the region.

Well Worth the trip!,... Worth the time!!,... an Adventure for the Whole Family.

The facilities and staff are Very accommodating!,...and if you are curious traveler,...you WILL BE REWARDED with many sights and sounds of the treasures of the region, as well as the cultures. Be casual, and look for even the smallest details of ancient buildings, structures and things "gone-by" from Chinese and Mongolian (Buddhist) cultures.
EVERYTHING is quite worth the investment of your time and expense. Be sure to bring the younger children to appreciate disappearing history! Even the trip up the hill and mountain roads are memorable !
The entire temple is a wonderful giant "museum" with "staff-Monks" (CAVEAT: not real Monks, as they do wear their street-clothes underneath the (their??) orange robes. As a formerly Ordained Buddhist Monk, I was not comfortable with this) that perform some rituals and do present somewhat of an 'Aura' of temple-life, and some of the "goings'-on".
If you are NOT in a hurry, you will have a pleasant and unforgettable experience the same as for me, ... and I hope... FOR YOU TOO !!!

A small potala palace. Very different from other lamaseries. They have refined mural paintings and statues.
Half price for students and +60 yrs.

Mongonificent!!!
Splendid. ..majestic. ..peaceful. ..must go!!! 2h drive from Hohhot. Bring your own food and spend at least some hours. We were there in a sunny, cold Autumn weekday ( -5C). Very kind Buddhist Monks around, two of them speaking English. Heaven on Earth.

A Tibetan-style monastery
Jul 2014 • Family
Initially, I was very reluctant to come here as it is quite far away. Our inner Mongolian friend was returning us a favor so he insisted on bringing us here. He had hired a group of monks to do a special blessing for our family. Watching all the ceremony and chanting was quite interesting. I was told that this is the second or third most important Tibetan monastery outside Tibet for historical reasons -- the last imperial family in China had their roots in Mongolia and they worshipped Buddha through Lamas, which had the same branch as Tibetan Lamas, I believe. (Correct me, if I am wrong).

The ride from Baotou was very long. We came here in July, and it was extremely hot as well. Once inside the Temple, it was quite cool. There wasn't much to do nearby, and dining choices were limited.

interesting break if you have a half day while in Baotou
Jun 2012 • Business
This is very much off the beaten track and there are no tour guides or literature in English, but it is a little but of Tibetan architechture in Inner Mongolia. While Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia is a few hundred km away, the lamasery on the slope of the mountains is entirely Mongolian while here it was Tibetan!
