Xilinhot homestay

A great place to visit for anyone interested in experiencing some genuine Inner Mongolian culture on their trip through Inner Mongolia or China! The homestay is located in the Abag Banner just west of Xilinhot. It’s an arid region with a population density of less than two people per square kilometer! The density of Inner Mongolia as a whole is more than ten times higher! So it’s an area abundant in nature. Most people here support themselves through keeping animals. In the settlement of the homestay lives a group of five people. They are herders and keep horses, sheep and cows. There are permanent buildings as well as yurts, one of which you will get to stay in.

Two of our guests made a video of their visit which will show you what you could expect

The experience will be very different depending on what you want to get out of it. If you want to try horseback riding, go for walks or just relax, it is entirely up to you. Also, there are possibilities to visit mongol festivals and celebrations, but for this you have to contact well in advance and check for availability.

 

You can reach the homestay either by car or taxi. Regrettably there are no busses. Taxi is about 350-400 yuan one way. You can call and ask for help finding the way.
