Grassland and Desert Adventure in Inner Mongolia

A taste of the homeland of Genghis Khan

Each year 300 million tons of soil are washed away in the Yellow and western Liaohe rivers, or 30,000 hectares of land lost. As a result, rivers are choked with silt that stops their flow.

• Spend the night in an authentic Inner Mongolian hut (called a yurt), catching the gorgeous sunrise the next morning on the plains 

• Experience the stunning and vast desert of Kubuqit at the Resonant Sand Gorge. Take part in exciting cultural activities like sand gliding and camel riding. Experience the sunset that evening.
