It's Hulunbuir in Inner Mongolia Province. I had no idea how large is this grassland before I visited it. It's big, very big. It's one of the three largest prairies in the world. I think it should rank first. It's also the original land of Genghis Khan, whose Mongol Empire became the largest contiguous empire in history. It's really a shock. Easy to image how he was grown in this prairie, huge ambitions.
We drove six hours in Hulunbuir, from morning to night. The road and the distant grassland were far from reaching. All I could see were white clouds, green grass and blue sky.
Hulun Lake is the largest lake in Inner Mongolia, also in this prairie.
We took a flight back to Shanghai. Hulunbir is at the very north part of China, far from Shanghai. Well, even the flight is expensive, I‘d like to choose a round-trip flight. However, if I lived in Beijing, I would choose the train.
