Here can be found some late Jurrassic era granite formations, peeking their heads out of the rolling mountains, themselves perched on the edge of rolling grasslands, the start of the romantic Mongolian Steppe.The rocks themselves were not really interesting, but the location...more

There are about frou pairs of trains running between Beijing and Chifeng. Tickets are often sold out. You may have to buy them on the black market just outside the stations. Going rate is about 25% more than official ticket price. make sure you read the train number and date before buying. Hard sleeper is just above 100 RMB official price, black market price about 125. However, in Chinese holiday season, the black market rate may be up to 200% or train ticket smay be plainly not available.
