Itinerary And Time Table In Inner Mongolia Of Alax Region
Tourism Overview Of Alax
Charming and Colorful Alxa
Alxa, the transliteratation of the Mongolian, means the place with a riot of color. The golden Badanjilin, Tenggeli and Wulanbuhe Deserts lay across the whole League. Badanjilin is the highest and most beautiful Desert in the world with over 140 lakes scattered all over like stars in the sky. The blue sky, the yellow sand, the swans and the lake water merges into one. Alxa possesses the only national desert geopark in China. There is the most centralized poplar forest which silently turns from deep green to golden yellow every time in late autumn. The Juyan river bank presents the colorful and lustrous scene attracting visitors in an endless stream.
The towering Helanshan Mountain stretches 250km like a green dragon spanning the southeastern fringe of Alxa. Its main peak, known as the highest in Inner Mongolia, rises to a height of 3,556m. It also renowned as the National Forest and Wildlife Nature Reserve, distributing the natural secondary forest of 540 thousand mu, 177 vertebrates and 18 animals under national protection like red deer and argali. Visiting here, you will be enraptured by the range upon range and the luxuriant cypresses and pines shrouded in mist and cloud, and a mass of multicoloured flowers and grass on the slopes and at the bottom of the valley with the bubbling flow spring. The Guangzong Temple and Fuyin Temple built separately in the reigns of Qianlong and Jiaqing of Qing Dynasty also lie in the mountain.
“The vast desert melted into the sky and the boundless gobi stretches with blown wind and sand drift”. In particular, the Mazongshan gobi in Ejina is most thrilling. Under the blazing sun, you can hardly tell what is real or what is mirage. The wonderful stones in various shape and style recorded the geological and climate changes taken in the Gobi, such as “chick breaking out of the egg”, “the old man” and “grape-like agate”, true to life and acclaimed as the acme of perfection.
Aolunbulage and Eribugai Grand Canyons, in “deep red and with rosy glow”, are the typical Danxia geomorphology. Haisenchulu rocks in fantastic appearance and lifelike shape, such as the romping protean Monkey King, the Pigsy sleeping soundly, and the eagle opening out its wings.
Jilantai and Yabulai Salt Lakes are mounted like silvern pearl in the land of Alxa. The lake salt reserve ranks first in Inner Mongolia with best quality. Jilantai Salt Lake has been developed for over 200 years and become the first mechanized salt mine. Helanshan Mountain is rich in Taixi Anthracite renowned at home and abroad with first-rate quality.
The natural geographical environment creats unique culture of Alxa. Mandela cliff carving and Helanshan Mountain rock painting lively reflect the ancient culture of ethnic minority in north china. As the treasure trove of human art, the Mandela carving features with numerous pieces, rich contents, concentrated distribution and long-lasting effect and ranks the first in Asia and the second in the world. Many Wooden Slips of the Han Dynasties and Xixia Cultural Relics were unearthed from Juyan site. The Juyan Wooden Slips, together with the Ruins of Yin, oracle bone inscriptions and Ancient Literature from Dunhuang, are called as four great discoveries of eastern civilization in 20th century. Black City Ruins is the most complete city site along the significant pass of Silk Road. Many excellent poems on frontier fortress have been handed down from the Han and Tang Dynasties. “The smoke of beacon tower rises alone up into the sky from the great desert, while the Yellow River flows through under the lingering nice light of the setting sun,” vividly depicted the splendid view of Alxa deserts. From 1716 to 1746, Cangyangjiacuo, titled the 6th Dalai Lama, was dedicated himself to the religious undertakings in Alxa. Awangdandeer, the noted Alxa scholars, also took all his life write over 40 books in Mongolian and Tibetan.
Brief introduction Of Western Xia Mausoleums
Yuanhao assumed the imperial title, it was known as the Xia Kingdom. In 1227, Western Xia was conquered by Yuan emperor Tai Zu (Genghis Khan). The Western Xia had ten ruling emperors over a 190 year period. The sites of the imperial mausoleums were chosen nearby at the east foot of the Helan Mountains, 25 kilometers west of Yinchuan City.
On the southeast corner at the foot of the Helan Mountains are two large mausoleums, probably Jialing and Yuling mausoleums of Li Jiqian and Li Demin, who were posthumously designated Emperor Tai Zu and Emperor Tai Zong. The architectural arrangement of the mausoleum area makes these two mausoleums most prominent, followed by others built later.
Like other imperial tombs, Western Xia mausoleums were composed of two architectural units, the mausoleum gardens above ground and underground palaces. All the mausoleum gardens faced south, and their architectural forms above ground have some unique characteristics, though they are quite similar to mausoleums of the Tang and Northern Song dynasties in Gongxian County.
Based on some excavations, each mausoleum had a unified layout, occupying an area of more than 100,000 square meters, surrounded by inner and outer walls. At each corner of the mausoleum gardens were watchtowers, providing visual indicators of the boundaries, serving functions similar to those of watchtowers of the Imperial Palace (Forbidden City) in Beijing. Mausoleum gardens were organized from south to north: Stone gates, tablet pavilion, outer city, inner city, hall furnished as an imperial bedroom and spiritual terrace.
In each of the four inner city walls was a gate; between the hall and terrace was an earth ridge shaped like a fish back, about 50 meters long. It was the earth covering of the tomb passage. The northern tip of the ridge was the highest point of the mausoleum garden, and was the mound above the underground palace. The mound, also known as the spiritual terrace, can be seen from some distance because of its height.
The unique characteristics of Western Xia mausoleums are clearly visible on the spiritual terraces. The mausoleum mounds of the Han, Tang and Northern Song dynasties are generally high, square-based packed earth mounds with tapering tops cut flat and gently sloped sides.
Completely different, the mounds of Western Xia mausoleums look like squat Buddhist pagodas, round or octagonal and about 20 meters high. Examples seen today have five or seven stories, each of which is built with flying rafters overlaid with rows of tiles, richly decorated with an interspersing of glazed green tiles. The sides of the spiritual terraces are painted a deep red, the red walls and the green tiles providing a striking contrast, making it easy to imagine how magnificent the spiritual terraces must have been.

We are safely back home. Thanks to your
service, we really had a great
time in the inner Mongoria.
All of us enjoyed the vast grassland and horse-back riding.
Our son, Ryoya has talked about the horses all the time and he said it
was the best during our trip to China.
It was the very first time for most of
us to visit China and we learned
a lot about the country through our talk with you.
You can learn about the history and the heritages by reading a
guidebook. But you never know how people live without visiting there and
talking with local people.
So we are very glad that we met you and you made our trip special.
As all of us were overwhelmed by the
bustling city of Beijing, we really
had a relaxing time when we were out of town.
Thank you again for your great service
and send our best wishes to the
driver, too. Without his good technique of driving, we would never got
