Hulunbuir (呼伦贝尔), located in the eastern portion of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, is named after two lakes in this area: Hulun (呼伦) Lake and Buir (贝尔) Lake. Situated near Heilongjiang Province to the east and bordering Mongolia and Russia to the west and north, Hulunbuir lies at the intersection of China, Russia, and Mongolia. It was designated as a National Forest City on July 9, 2012 and is one of China’s Top 10 Ice and Snow Tourist Cities. Famous sights here include the Hulunbuir Grasslands, the E'erguna (额尔古纳) Wetlands at the base of the Western Mountains, the Manzhouli (满洲里) National Gate, and the Golden Horde Mongolian Village (金帐汗蒙古部落).
The Hulunbuir Grasslands in the western part of Hulunbuir are famous for Hulun Lake and Buir Lake, which are both expansive with many beautiful vistas. The region's pasture grass is at its most luxuriant in July and August, making these months a great time to go deep into the grassland for horseback riding, fishing, or rafting on Hulun Lake. You can also enjoy wrestling, archery, and horse lassoing performances at the Huhnor Grassland and Bayan Hushuo Grassland. If you want to, you can even stay in a Mongolian yurt to experience local daily life.
The Ergun Wetlands were formerly known as the Genhe Wetlands. Located on the outskirts of Ergun Right Banner, they are one of China's larger wetlands with a good level of ecological preservation. The terrain here is flat and open, and the tributaries of the Ergun River flow from here to form a spectacular and beautiful river wetland landscape. The wetlands contain a large alluvial plain and have formed a river delta. The wetlands also include the Genhe, Dulbu and Hawu'er Rivers, their tributaries, their floodplains on either bank, shrubby willows, alkali-salt grasslands and sinkholes.
Manzhouli Guomen Scenic Area is located on the border between China and Russia. It is home to an impressive border gate and the no. 41 boundary tablet. There is also a visitor center and an exhibition hall on the Sixth National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. The current border gate is fifth generation and is the site's main attraction. There are also two squares with a fighter jet and locomotive. The fighter jet was purchased with donations from local people, while the locomotive was used by Chairman Mao during a visit to the Soviet Union.
The Manzhouli Russian Matryoshka Square is the only tourism and entertainment plaza in China to have been built on the theme of traditional Russian handicrafts such as Matryoshka dolls. This is one of Manchuria's iconic tourist attractions as it embodies the regional characteristics of the three countries of China, Russia and Mongolia and the special way in which they blend together in Manzhouli. The main item in the plaza is a large Matryoshka doll about 30 meters tall. The total area of the plaza is about 3,000 square meters. This is currently the largest doll in the world.
