This is peaceful place with beautiful scene. You should go to the hill for sightseeing. The monastery will close from 06 PM so you should go to there in morning.

Splendid. ..majestic. ..peaceful. ..must go!!! 2h drive from Hohhot. Bring your own food and spend at least some hours. We were there in a sunny, cold Autumn weekday ( -5C). Very kind Buddhist Monks around, two of them speaking English. Heaven on Earth.
