Genghis Khan's Mausoleum
The mausoleum is made up of four palaces in the shape of Mongolian yurts, glorious and imposing with rounded roofs and glazed tiles inlayed golden eaves.
Wudangzhao Monastery
The Lamasery itself is of traditional, pretty Tibetan architecture, with white walls and flattened roofs, and was allegedly modeled after the Tashilhunpo Monastery in Shigatse.
Resonant Sand Gorge
It's said that the noise of sliding sand, after which the place is named, was thought by Marco Polo to be demons seeking to lure travellers to their death.
Leader of a destitute clan he prevailed in an inter-clan feud. Temujin over-came all rivals and by 1206 was acknowledged as "Genghis Khan", the "Universal Ruler" of all Mongolian people. He became one of the most supreme military leaders in the world, the founder of one of the vastest em-pires in world history stretching from North China to the Black Sea.

Travel Tips
Baotou is the largest city in Inner Mongolia, it is linked with Hohhot by express way. Baotou is accessible by both plane and train. Buses are used to reach nearby sights. Most of the best restaurants are to be found in Donghe, the eastern section of Baotou.
The best time to visit Baotou is from late spring through the summer. Baotou itself is not a haven for travellers, it does not have any hotels that are of first class facility or price. There are few to buy in the city. But some local products are still worthy to be recommended here.
