Fly to Baotou
Local time(+8)
Baotou is located at the southern end of the Inner Mongolia Plateau. The Yin Mountains traverse the central part of the city, forming three terrain areas: the northern plateau, the central mountain, and the southern plain. The beautiful Lu City is rich in tourism resources, where you can enjoy magnificent grasslands, vast wetlands, precipitous peaks and long history of Tibetan Buddhist temples. The name of Baotou originates from the Mongolian “Baketu”, which means “the place with deer”, so Baotou is also known as “Prairie Lu City”. The unique geographical location makes Baotou become the frontier of the nomadic and farming ethnic exchanges. In the past, countless Shanxi people walked through the West Exit and came here, which also brought the farming culture of the Central Plains. From then on, the northwest culture blended with the nomadic culture. In Baotou, regardless of food culture or living habits, you can feel the unique northwest style.
