China Grasslands and Pastures

Have you ever visited the grasslands of China? The majority of them are found on plateaus, where the air is clean and fresh. Taking a deep breath and enjoying the fresh air on the grassland can be a wonderful experience, and the best time to visit is during the summer when the weather is pleasant and calm.

Hulunbuir Grassland

The Hulunbuir Grassland was described as a place where "the sky is blue and the grass is boundless; when the grass bows in the wind, the horses and sheep will appear" in an ancient Chinese poem.

During the summer, the grass on Hulunbuir Grassland is thick and lush. The intoxicating sunset on the horizon as the grassland turns gold is breathtaking.
