Gegentala Prairie, within the territory of Siziwang Banner in Inner Mongolia, was one of the first places to be named a 4A-class scenic spot in China.
In Mongolian, "Gegentala" means a summer resort or the place to graze during summer. Gentle landforms and vast landscapes are its unique features. On the grassland, the weather is cool and the natural scenery is fascinating. With thriving grass and abundant water, the green of the grassland reach out as far as eyes can see. Colorful wild flowers and flocks of sheep that look like masses of cloud color the scene.
Every July and August when flowers are in full bloom and sheep and horses are in their best condition, a tourism festival called Nadam Fair is held (an annual gala event for the Mongolian), making it the perfect time to visit the prairie.
