Hoofing it or on horseback, you'll find the cream of Inner Mongolia's grasslands at Wulagai

Locals call it "the grassland on the edge of sky". Wulagai, in the northeast of Xilin Gol League, is probably the cream of the breathtaking scenery of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region's renowned prairies.

As a dream place for photographers, it also had long caught the eye of French director Jean-Jacques Annaud as he prepared Wolf Totem, the film adaptation of author Jiang Rong's hymn for the grasslands that hit China's big screens earlier this year.

As one drives from the league's capital, Xilinhot, the landscape spreads out like a green carpet decorated with wildflowers. The road stretches beyond the eyesight and meets the azure sky, which is dotted with fluffy clouds.

It is difficult to find wolves here today, but while stepping on this land, the power of wildness has a tendency to cast off people's memories of urban life. It's easy to seize the moment and commune with nature.
