Day 3 Hohhot
Our group at Gegentala Grassland
The private car will send you back to Hohhot to continue the tour to Zhaojun Temple, the Five-pagoda Temple and Dazhao Temple. Covered by green grass, Zhaojun Tomb is also called the Green Tomb. It is one of the existing largest tombs of Han Dynasty with a history of over 2,000 years. As one of the four beauties in ancient China, Zhaojun has volunteered to marry the Hun's Khan in return for a 60-year's peaceful friendship between Han nationality and Hun nationality. The Five-Pagoda Temple is named so because there are five small dagobas on the pedestal of the pagoda. It is the landmark construction of the city. The highlight to see here is the Mongolian Astronomical Map on the north wall of the pagoda, which is the only found astronomical map labeled in Mongolia so far in the world. Dazhao Temple is the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Hohhot which was constructed in 1580 during the Ming Dynasty. It is also called the Silver Buddha Temple because a silver statue of Sakyamuni is enshrined there. Besides, this temple is also noted for the other two treasures. One is the two lively carved dragons on the golden pillars on the two sides of the silver statue, and the other one is the vivid fresco on the walls of the halls.

Is horse riding still available end of November in Hohhot grass land or surrounding?

Answered by Janice | Nov. 07, 2018 00:30

As winter approaches in Hohhot at the end of November, it may have started to snow, with an average temperature of -2℃ (28℉). And most of the grass on the grassland has been already yellow and withered, and some may has been covered with snow. So it is not a wise choice to ride horse on the grassland at the end of November. The best time to ride horse in Hohhot is from June to September.

Visiting grassland end October 2017. I will be traveling to Hohhot from 21-26 october.
Is it still possible to visit the grasslands since the climate will turn colder by that time ? If it is possible, which grassland would be good for yurt-staying?

Actually, it’s a little last to enjoy the grassland scenery at the end of Oct. You are suggested to go to the nearest one, Xilamuren Grassland.

Hi, I think May is a good time to visit Inner Mongolia. The temperature of Hohhot in May is around 8 - 23 Celsius, but it is cooler if you travel to the grassland. So you'd better to take a coat or jacket.

temperature in the grassland
What kind of temperature will be there in the grassland in the night when I visit in September? Will there be heating in the tent?

In the early September, the average temperature in the grassland is 15C (59F) to 25C (77F). The temperature drops dramatically in the evening, so remember to bring a coat or jacket. By the way, there is an airconditioner in the tent, you can turn on it if you feel cold.
