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.

Yinchuan Tour

Yinchuan is the capital city of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region in China, the Hui people's homeland. It is located between Helan Shan Mountain on its west ( a natural barrier from the Gobi desert ) and the Yellow River on its east ( a rich source of water ), a smart location chosen by the Tangut founders in Western Xia Empire over 1000 years ago.

Yinchuan has long been nicknamed as "River Side City Beyond the Great Wall" and "Home to Fishes and Rice", famous for its prosperity in the land that is sun-parched and generally barren in Ningxia thanks to the Yellow River and the massive Helan Mountain.

Today Yinchuan is like a hidden gem that attracts more and more people to explore its historical sites, Hui culture and rich natural resources - colorful Hui people's folklore, the myth of Helan Mountain Rock Carving and West Xia Tombs, and intriguing views of rivers and mountains. Yinchuan also serves as your springboard to start your exploration further west into the western Inner Mongolia.
