About Ordos

Erdos is located in the southwestern part of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The Mongolian word "Erdos" means "many palaces." Erdos has a long history and diverse cultures. Visiting the desert scenery, feeling the coolness of Lake Engebei, and then riding a camel to explore the Mongolian folk customs, all combine to create a very special and memorable experience. Erdos also hosts the Yellow River Canyon, where visitors can admire the cliffs and attractions on both banks. There are also historical sites such as the Tomb of Genghis Khan, Site of the "Hetao People" and the Twelve Connected Cities.

Popular Attractions in Ordos

Whistling Dune Bay (Xiangshawan)
4.4/5
1,301 Reviews
Desert
Whistling Dune Bay is located in the eastern corner of the Kubuqi Desert. On the lee side of the slope of this expansive desert, it appears to have the form of a crescent moon. When the weather is cool and clear and the sand is dry, visitors can hear a humming sound like that from a drum or bugle emanating from the sand as they slide down it from the peak of the dunes. The sound is louder when multiple guests slide down together, with the whole dune becoming like a giant echo wall. Whistling Dune Bay gets its name from this effect. Exploring the sea of sand by camel is an entirely different sort of experience. There is no feeling like the amazing sensation of riding the “ship of the desert” as it traverses the sands beneath the bright blue sky and white clouds.

Kangbashen Tourist Area is known for its rapid rise from the wilderness to become a modern city. "Kangbashen" means an "excellent teacher" in Mongolian. It is a national 4A-level urban tourist scenic spot that has been successfully created by the city as the main body. Surprisingly, it has a relaxing beach like the seaside and a fountain located in Wulan Mulun Square.

4.4/5
231 Reviews
Desert
Qixing Lake Desert Ecological Park is situated in the hinterland of the Kubuqi Desert in Hanggin Banner, Erdos City. It is a clear water field in the vast desert. The seven lakes line up like the Triones, and this is why the lake is called Qixing lake (seven-star lake). There are a variety of birds inhabiting the lake, including thousands of larus relictuses, a kind of bird protected at the first-class national level. The natural landscapes such as the sand sea, sand hills and lakes are preserved here, and visitors can enjoy the comfort of nature here. Whether it is climbing the sand hill to enjoy the lake view, or watching the sunset in the desert by the lake, you will enjoy the scene that is not seen in the city.

Trip Moments

Alex Bao   
If you look at the Internet, the meaning of the word "Ordos" in Mongolian is mostly interpreted as "a place with many palaces", but there is no period in history where there are really many palaces. After deep communication with the locals, I found that the more reliable explanation may be the southern grassland. Erdos is located at the southern end of the desert, and its Mongolian pronunciation is similar to that of Ordosuo. - Perhaps this is the true origin of the word Erdos.
