Solo Adventure Tips:


How to Get There?

1) From Hohhot, you can take a bus to Wuzhong Banner, where you can rent an automobile and drive to the grasslands. Alternatively, you can proceed on from Wuzhong Banner to Zhuozishan by local bus, where, instead of stopping off at the grasslands, you can, from the window of the bus, enjoy the sight of the huge windmills that dot the landscape along the the Wuzhong-Zhuozishan highway as well as viewing the expanses of the grasslands that lie spread out before you.

2) An alternative suggestion, if you are a group, is to take the train from Hohhot to Zhuozishan, then rent a minivan at the railway station and drive to the grasslands from there. You will see the grasslands open up before your gaze when you pass the Dabeigou White Birch Scenic Area and the Ninety-Nine Springs Scenic Area.
