Xilin Gol Prairie

Xilin Gol Prairie is located in the middle of the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region, bordering on the Republic of Mongolia in the north and neighboring Hebei Province in the south. Within the zone are vast stretches of natural grasslands and landscapes of sand, lakes and volcanic remains, the most typical prairie scenery in Inner Mongolia.

For decades, it's been a rich resource of grass and water for cattle, and one of the Mongol ethnic group's main regions to live close together. The prairie boasts a great number of historical sites, such as the Xilinhot Scenic Zone, the Great Wall of the Jin Dynasty (1115-1234), and the Site of Shangdu (Upper Capital) of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), etc.
