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.

Hohhot Tour

Hohhot is the regional capital of Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region. It is located in the center of Inner Mongolia, with its north being the Yinshan Mountains and Yellow River to its south.

The present city of Hohhot has been developed both from an old city founded by Mongol ruler Altan Khan in 1581 and the new city - Suiyuan City established in 1737 by the Qing Dynasty. The name of "Hohhot" that comes from the old city means "blue city", reminding people of the arching blue sky and the grasslands.

Now Hohhot has attractively tree-lined roads with a few historical sites, temples: Dazhao Lamasery, Xilituzhao Lamasery, Five Pagoda Temple, Jiangjun Yashu, Great Mosque, Saihanglaojie, Inner Mongolia Museum and more.

Hohhot is also a springboard for the in- depth travel to its vicinity (Grasslands and sand ): Xilamuren Grassland, Gegentala Grassland, Huitenxile Grassland, Resonant Sand, Gengkis Khan Mausoleum, etc.

Stay in Yurts
There are three kinds of yurts at Gegentala Grassland - normal traditional yurts, deluxe yurts and war chariot yurts.

1.Normal traditional yurts:
These kinds of yurts are simple, more in traditional Mongolian style. It is made of hide supported by rod and easily taken apart. But it doesn't offer bath and toilet facilities. So for those who stay in a traditional yurt, they have to use the public toilet and bath room, a little unconvenient for modern people. But still many people prefer these kinds of yurts as a kind of grassland experience.
2. Deluxe Yurts:
Deluxe yurts have almost the same functions and facilities as hotels. They look like yurt outside. But inside the yurts, they are just like the standard rooms of hotels - washing room, air-conditioned, bath room, refrigerate, tea table, desk and more.
3. War chariot yurts:
Genghis Khan conducted an aggressive foreign policy by having the Mongol invasions of East and Central Asia. In his life, the Mongol Empire finally occupied most of Asia. War chariot yurts were one his powerful weapons to overpass his counterparts. They were fast, mobile Though much industrialized, Mid-Inner Mongolia is still worth a visit with three well-known grasslands nearby including Gegentala, Xilamuren and Huitenxila, sand sliding at the Resonant Sand Gorge, Genghis Khan's Tomb at Ejin Horo. The ancient grassland city of Hohhot is teeming with historical and cultural relics such as Dazhao Monastery, Five Pagoda Temple, Xilituzhao Monastery, Great Mosque, Jiangjun Yashu at Suiyuan City and Zhaojun Tomb, which make your trip worthwhile.
