created by dji camera
Close by nature, Huhenuoer camping in proximity of city of Hulunbuir. Big area with many options for staying overnight.

Now we start to see the real Inner Mongolia with blue skies and natural habitats

We arrived at night at Huhenuor Tourism Area camping. Driving there in the late evening in the dark was quite exhausting. Roads have been in very good shape the whole trip and it is a pleasure to drive them.

Late arrival at the camping area and even we agreed on the phone earlier the security guard did not have any information and didn’t let us in. After some phone calls and discussion finally, he agreed to open the gates. Needed to find our spot in the darkness which was in the high grass area. The campsite area lights are totally insufficient at night.

The camping area

After a long and good sleep time check out the spot where we parked. Long grass everywhere and the calm lake just behind the trailer. Cannot believe this view in China, is amazing. The parking space was just a place with a box with electricity and water, that’s it. Wonder about snakes in the long grass? Mosquitos have never bothered me, maybe I have bad blood? Anyway, we set up our tent for protection from the various insects in the area and sipped some morning coffee with the lake view. Later on, took the shuttle bus to various places in the area as the distances are quite long.

Activities

Many activities in the area. Unfortunately, the prices are really high. For example, taking the slide one time was 100CNY=13EUR. The best value was the horse riding on an 11km trail, the price was 400CNY=54EUR. The ride took almost 45 minutes. Luckily the swings were free and kids could enjoy them as much they wanted. In my opinion, the prices for the activities are a bigger problem when you stay for a longer time. The campground is in my opinion for a short stay.

Many of these activities can be purchased in advance thru Taobao but need a Chinese account and it is purely in the Chinese language. The discounts can even be as high as -50% if you buy it well in advance. At least one day before.

Here is a good example of a longer stay campsite for DIY travelers, Tangshan Hot Springs RV Camping in Nanjing.

Some mixed pictures from the camp area

Basically, this place was like a fresh breeze from nature. The biggest issue is that they normally are not designed for long stays. It was clean and the views were amazing but somehow it is missing something that you could stay for longer periods. Someplace to cook, activity houses and BBQ stands would be a good start. Also, the area is so big and scattered.

Yes, we absolutely recommend visiting the place and feel the Inner Mongolia grasslands under your feet and enjoy.
