Spring in Xilingol is a season when everything grows. Although the grassland still has some unmelted snow, the tender vegetation buds breaking through the snow offer a with dreamy aesthetics. When the mountain flowers bloom, the season is quiet and clear.
Summer in Xilingol is a season of green fields and cool breeze. The vast grassland is infinitely green and in contrast to the blue waters of the fast-flowing river. With the blue sky covered with soft white clouds, flocks of cattle and sheep can be seen leisurely foraging and running.
Autumn in Xilingol is a season much sought after by shutterbugs. The prairie in autumn has no brilliant wild flowers, but withered and yellow grass. It looks like a large carpet, offering a steady and thick feeling when walking on it, while winter brings the grand gathering known as Nadam Fair to the frozen grassland. It’s a great time to visit and admire the colourful ethnic costumes of the riders as their horses gallop across the snowy plains.
