A rhododendron festival commenced in Orgon (Oroqen) Autonomous Banner, Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia autonomous region on May 8, attracting hundreds of tourists to view the blossom scenery and art performances.
Every May, rhododendrons blossom all over the mountains in Orgon. Visitors can embrace beautiful scenery combining green hills, blue lakes, and a purple sea of flowers. Sometimes, tourists can also experience snowfall adding to the beautiful scenery.
