A group of diplomats from 15 countries travelled from Beijing to Inner Mongolia last week to explore the history and culture of the grassland during the third Cultural Discovery Tour.

From June 25-28, the delegation visited the dairy giant the Yili Group, the Inner Mongolia Museum, the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan and the Exhibition of the Chinese Minority Intangible Cultural Heritages. Participants also experienced the Mongolian folk customs, watched a traditional Ordos wedding ceremony and tried their hands to make a horsewhip.

Initiated by Chinese Ministry of Culture, the event has seen diplomats visiting Jiangxi's Jingde town last May and Fujian's Quanzhou city in Nov in the first two trips.
