We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xilituzhao Lamasery
Xilituzhao Lamasery or Xilitu Lamasery is located just to the east of Dazhao Lamasery in Yuquan District of Hohhot. The temple was founded in the Tibetan style in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It houses the residence of the 11th Grand Living Buddha.

According to the historical records in Ming Dynasty (AD 1582), after Altan Khan of Mongolia died, his son inherited Altan Khan's position. When he came to power, to emulate his father's practice, he decided to invite the Dalai Lama Sonam Kennedy III, to Inner Mongolia, spreading religious ministries. The Dalai Lama III accepted his invitation. To greet the arrival of the Dalai Lama III, he established this small Lama Temple in 1585. After the Qing Emperor Kangxi, Yongzheng, Xianfeng, the temple became the largest in Hohhot Lamaism temple and held the power in the region of the Yellow Sect by the continuous expansion and renovation.

The first Grand Living Buddha was Xitituge, who was a teacher of Dalai Lama IV. He onced ascended to the Holy Seat of Dalai Lama in Tibet. When he returned from Tibet, he changed his temple's name into Xilitu Zhao. Xilitu means Holy Seat in Tibetan and Zhao means temple in Mongolian.

Xilituzhao Lamasery is still very active today. sometimes visitors may come across Tibetan monks and followers in prayer, you may get the chance to see one of the temple festivals, where traditional instruments are played. It is sometimes possible to find a monk who can speak English and can take you around.
