Inner Mongolia travel guide

Landmarks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Wildlife Areas
Covering most of the northern edge of China beyond the Great Wall, Inner Mongolia has scenic grasslands dotted with natural lakes, deserts, and industrial cities. Tourist attractions in Inner Mongolia include a World Heritage-listed geopark with a granite forest, ethnic villages, and museums detailing the life of nomadic tribes. Numerous lamaist temples housing exquisite bodhisattva images give insight into this autonomous region's Buddhist heritage. Certain traditions of the vast grassland empire remain alive and well: an itinerary in Inner Mongolia can include horse races, camel rides, and sand sledging, plus visits to Mongolian yurts and plenty of samples of kumis (fermented horse milk).
