Where can I start! This place is beautiful and peaceful with lots of history! You MUST visit this if you are in Inner Mongolia. You will not regret it. It’s lots of walking so make sure to wear comfortable shoes!

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.

A Tibetan-style Lamasery in the mountains North of Baotou, this must be one of the best sites to visit in the region. The road is rough and full of unpleasantly noxious lorries, but the Lamasery is worth the trip - around 2 hours from Baotou....More
