Yinchuan Travel Guide

Yinchuan City, on the banks of the Yellow River, is the provincial capital of Ningxia Hui Minority Autonomous Region. In 1038 AD, Li Yuanhao (Emperor Jingzong of the Western Xia) founded the Xia Empire. He built his capital on the site of present-day Yinchuan. Today, on the outskirts of Yinchuan, you can find the well-preserved imperial tombs of the Western Xia Mausoleums. This has become one of the most-visited sites in Yinchuan. Yinchuan is also a city completely suffused with Hui ethnic style and culture. There are numerous mosques throughout the city. You can also go to the Helan Mountains, where it is possible not only to enjoy the beautiful natural landscape but also to take a look at prehistoric cliff paintings dating back to more than 10,000 years ago.

The Helan Mountains are an isolated desert mountain range forming the border of Inner Mongolia and Ningxia. They are about 200 kilometers from north to south, form 15 to 50 kilometers wide and about 2,000 meters in altitude. Their highest peak is 3,556 meters. In Western Xia Empire, Helan Mountains are regarded as the summer resort for the royal families where a great number of temporary imperial head-quarters were built. Gunzhong Pass is the most renowned summer resort of the Helan Mountains, which is a perfect spot for hiking and admiring the scenery of Yinchuan. Helan Mountain Scenic Area boasts towering mountains, dense forests, beautiful natural scenery and unique landscape. You can find Chinese red pines, temple junipers and dragon spruces, rare shrubs and Mongolian almond everywhere in the forests and valleys. Old trees standing between cliffs, snow remaining on the mountain tops and vast areas of pines and misty clouds in a peaceful atmosphere, makes it one of the most memorable sights in Yinchuan. Helan Mountain Scenic Area comprises several historical interest sites including Twin Pagodas at Baisikou and Rock Paintings. The ancient people carved their lives and legends on the rocks. The rock paintings in Helan Mountain were done by various nationalities in northern China, approximately between 3,000 and 10,000 years ago. Helen Mountain Scenic Area is also home to the Suyukou National Forest Park. Helan Mountains are considered an area suitable for wine production. The famous brand Helanshan as well as a few large Chinese wine companies have begun development here. Together they now own 20,000 acres of land for wine plantations.#mountains #wintergetaway

Bagus is the name of Dionysus, and the old winery in Ningxia, Bags Winery, is not the name, making the most mellow wine. (Pushpin) Practical tips: Baggs Winery is a million-acre ecological demonstration estate in Helan Mountain, consisting of two grape plantations and a green human winery. With an area of 1,670 mu, it is designed to produce 300 tons of high-quality manor wine. The Baggs trademark was awarded Ningxia Famous Brand Product. (Like) Featured recommendation: The owner is a beautiful and elegant woman, making the whole manor a winery with European court art. There is even a beautiful and romantic golden music hall in the winery, where concerts and dances are often held here. Baggs is also the most advanced third-class winery in Ningxia. In addition to red wine, it also produces ice wine and even brandy, which is very rare in Ningxia wineries. This is also the first time to drink ice wine. Different from red wine, there is more or less sour. The ice wine is cold and sweet, full of aroma, and has a long aftertaste. Everyone has a bite to fall in love with. Ideal for a long time after a meal with a dessert.

You can pretend to be in Byzantine Castle in Ningxia! Ningxia's most worthwhile winery list is definitely the Changyu Mosel XV winery. 2018 China Northwest Tourism Marketing Conference issued a heavyweight: "Magic Northwest 100 Scenes" list, 17 scenic spots in Ningxia, one of them is Zhang Yuning Xia Mosel 15th Winery. () Featured recommendation: () Ningxia Changyu Moss 15th Winery, designed by Lanyu Culture. The entire winery has invested nearly 790 million yuan. In the end, it was built with magnificent momentum, like the medieval Byzantine castle. (sweet) can be pretending to be abroad here, no wonder it has become the most popular tourist destination in all Ningxia wineries. I met the newcomer who took a wedding dress here, and I feel that it has become a wedding photo carding spot for Ningxia people. (Cool) There is also a wine museum; the entertaining wine museum uses interactive games such as cutting-edge technology augmented reality to unveil the mysterious veil of wine in the play. (Love) The constant temperature and humidity underground cellar is the palace of sleeping wine, the winding labyrinth, let you get close to the wine beauty. It is said that the wine produced here is only exported abroad. (Kiss) Not only is the castle popular among tourists, but the winery has always been striving for excellence in the winemaking process. The excellent quality of the wine not only impresses every wine lover, but also attracts the attention of the world's tourists.
