More than 1.6 million of the Mongolian, Han, Man, Hui and other nationalities live there. Let's experience colourful Hinggan, a green, clean land with silver springs and a "red cradle".
Intoxicating Hinggan grassland
A great grassland with waving grassthat extends beyond the horizon is just what we've been looking forward to. This is a spiritual land for the Mongolian peopleand their dreams. Generations of Mongolians have lived there. Although the Mongolians have settled down and changed their way oflife after hundreds of years of a nomadic existence, they remain hospitable to guests.
Milk tea and dairy products are an indispensible part of life here. If you're lucky enough, you might see a Nadam fair. Although small Nadamfairs are common, large ones are held just once in July or August every year. Mongolians are a people on horseback. Ease andconfidence on horseback are hard won. Not everyone is able to remain composed and confident on horseback, that requires a great deal of courage. The racehorses and agile Mongolian riders appear to be in perfect harmony. Horses are the darlings of the Mongolian people, whose love for them will never die.
Horse racing, wrestling, and archery are happinessitself for the Mongolians. Loud and clear songs reflect their uncomplicated personality. Sitting on the grass, everyone is full of emotion and cannot help singing aloud. Only then can we really understand why each Mongolian is able to sing songs somovingly and melodiously. Mongolians who have stories to tell sing all their life to convey legends, show their love and express theirculture.
The grassland gains vitality from water. Water in turn gives rise to life. Mongolians lovenature and life. Their demands from nature are limited and reasonable, which is the reason the Hinggan League retainsitssimplicity and antiquity. Mongolian tents make you feel at home. They have become symbolic of nomadic Mongolian life. Roast lamb is abig treat Mongolians give to their guests. Exquisitely prepared and roasted whole lambs are attractive in their colour,smell andtaste.
Mongolian robes are colourful and reflect their love for the grassland and their expansive personality. They love white clouds, blue skies and green grasslands. Thus, white, blue and green are the three coloursthey lovemost. However, few Mongolians wear Mongolian robes on a daily basis, only wearing them on major festive holidays.
