Inner Mongolia was the origin of minority ethnic groups of North China in ancient times. It has a long history. In the region, there are so many cultural relics, cliff-side paintings and calligraphy, ancient cities and city ruins, ancient Great Wall, temples, and lamaseries.

The vast and affluent grassland has brought up the industrious and brave Mongolians. Mainly supported by animal husbandry, they have long been settled on grassland along waterways. Since ancient times, Mongolians have been known as an "ethnic group on horseback", because they live in yurts and move by lele carts. Roaming about freely on grassland on horseback, tourists can feel the wideness of grassland, and the beauty of its landscape. At night, you may sleep on grassland and you will get a new experience. And then, you can learn how to make milk products, herd sheep, and erect a yurt so as to experience the joys of a nomadic ethnic group's life on grassland.
