Situated in the southeast of Darhan Muminggan Joint Banner, Xilamuren Prairie, a typical example on the plateau, is covered by green grass and fresh flowers every summer and autumn, making those seasons the best times to visit.
Xilamuren means "yellow water" in Mongolian. It is also known as Puhui Temple, a lama temple built near the Xilamuren River in 1769 during Qing Dynasty. The average temperature in July and August is around 18 C to 21 C, with the average elevation of 1,700 meters.
