-Travel to Bashang Grasslands

Bashang Grasslands, the nearest prairie destination from Beijing, have long been one of the ideal sites to escape the city¡'s summer heat.

The four parts are located in four different counties in Hebei Province. For visitors from Beijing, Fengning Bashang is the site that is most accessible.

The special climate and geographical position at the junction of the North China Plain and Inner Mongolia Grasslands give Bashang its unique natural landscapes and make it a popular destination for tourists and photographers. The yearly average temperature here is around 15 degrees.
The period from June through September is the best time for visiting. The average temperature ranges from 17 degrees to 19 degrees during this period, about 10 degrees lower than that in downtown Beijing. Horse riding, camping, watching local wrestling competitions, or staying in farmers¡'ongolian yurts to eat whole roast sheep and other plain foods are the main attractions for visitors. Vast lakes, sunrises and sunsets over the grasslands provide great views for city dwellers who have grown tired of the urban sprawl. Grassland tourism in Bashang is a recent phenomenon.
