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.

Ningxia Tour

Ningxia Home of the Hui people, Ningxia is the short form of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, one of the five minority autonomous regions in China. The other four minority regions are Tibetans in Tibet, the Zhuangs in Guangxi, the Uyghurs in Xinjiang, and the Mongols in Inner Mongolia. Hui people make up one third population in Ningxia. 

With the city of Yinchuan as its capital, Ningxia is located on the northwest Loess highland with the Yellow River flowing past the great amount of its land and the part of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall running along its northeastern frontier. Ningxia is surrounded by Shaanxi to the east, and Gansu and Inner Mongolia to the south and the north. It has an area of about 66,400 square kilometres. 

One of Ningxia's main tourist spots is the famous Western Xia Imperial Tombs site 35 km west of Yinchuan. The remnants of nine Western Xia emperors' tombs and two hundred other tombs lie within a 50-km² area. Other famous sites in Ningxia include Helan Shan Rock Carving, Ming-era section of the Great Wall,the mysterious 108 dagobas, Shapotou and more. 

The desert playground of Shapotou lies on the southern fringes of the Tengger Desert (Tenggerli) in Zhongwei. Making a camel trek out into the Tengger Desert allows you to experience the mystical landscape of the shitfting sand dunes. Rafting down the Yellow River is a unqiue travel experience too!

1.The good season for the Tenger Desert Travel falls on summer and autumn, for there possibly happen sandstorms in winter and spring, which may make people to be lost and cause danger.
2.Do remember take plenty of water and don't walk alone once you join in the desert-travel. You should build the good relationship with the camels. For they are the most reliable friends in the desert. 
3.Once you come across the sandstorm, don't hide yourself on the non-windward sand dunes. Hiding on the non-windward of sand dunes may cause you to have the danger of being buried and suffocation.. The right way is we should lead the camel towards the windward slope and then hide yourself behide your camel.
4.Sharp temperature difference between day and night exists in the desert. In daytime the sunshine will make your skin burt while the night could be very cold. So we should prepare for both summer and winter clothes. 
5.The desert-travel is a team activity. If we want have a nice trip,you should cooperate well with your tour guide and divers ( camel or car ).
6.Don't forget the desert is a part of the earth.. Pay attention to your environment protection consciousness. Take the rabbish bag with you or bury them in the sand deeply.
7.You should grip tightly the packsaddle and hump when riding the camel to prevent yourself falling from your camel and droped to the ground suddenly.
8.Don,t approach the hind legs or the head of your camel, in case it will kick and hurt you.
9.The camel is basically docile, but when frightened it can be dangerous. So we must avoid the sudden high voice and any bright color(eg, open the bright-colored umbrella )
10.When riding the camel for a long time, don't be too rigid and tight. You should sit on your camel naturally and adjust your sitting position when necessary. If necessary, walk some minutes with the camel.
