The Bayinbuluke Grassland is the biggest highland grassland in China. In Mongolian language, Bayinbuluk means rich spring water. The green grassland amidst the snowcapped Tianshan Mountains is the home of the Mongolians.
Bayinbuluke's considerable water supply supports the luxurious grasslands, numerous varieties of multihued flowers, and hundreds of thousands of cattle and sheep. You get a glimpse of the beauty of the Bayinbuluke Grassland in the adjacent picture which also shows a yurt, the circular domed tent used by Mongolian nomads. This vast highland prairie is home to the descendents of Mongols who came to the place from Russia about 100 years ago.
