Stretching in a great crescent across northern China, Inner Mongolia is a landlocked autonomous region, that spans more than 2,400 km (1,490 miles) from east to west. The region may give you a vision of nomadic herders, thundering horses, shimmering sand dunes, vast grasslands, and, of course, the great warrior Genghis Khan. Inner Mongolia is a versatile destination that has everything from historic, culture to outdoor adventures. For the historic, visit Ereenhot, which houses some of the world's oldest dinosaur fossils in the China Ancient Biology Museum, and the culture enthusiasts, can enjoy a visit to Genghis Khan Mausoleum and Wudangzhao Lamasery is a must. Finally, if you enjoy the outdoors, then the vast grassland and desert are for you.
In summer, you can join the Naadam Festival and ride a horse like a Mongolian. In winter, you should head to Hulunbuir to take in the snowy wonderland. You can visit the last reindeer tribe, the Ewenki people, or spend one night on the traditional northern Chinese heated brick bed.
