Day 13 - 14: Chilechuan Grassland

Chilechuan Grassland

Aobao, a stone pile, was originally a land mark in the boundless grassland. As the grassland was far away from mountains, people gradually began to regard aobao as a mountain where they could worship gods. Such worship ceremonies can last several days and are also used as an opportunity for young people to date. The famous folk song Date at aobao may be a product of this custom. It is also said that if you pick up a stone and walk around aobao three times in a clockwise direction, make a wish, and then put the stone back at aobao, your wish will be fulfilled. Here we will partake in the Nadam Fair, horse riding and wrestling.

Dalate

The Resonant Sand Gorge is the spiced up name for a desert about 18000 sq km. The popularity of the desert started only a few years ago. maybe the completion of the Hohhot-Baotou highway speeds up the publicity of the tourist attraction. It is an isolated desert as mentioned with about an area 18000 sq km. I don't know how it becomes. It is a fun to frolic on the sand!
