China - Inner Mongolia (Chapter)
This is the Inner Mongolia chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
Mongolia. The word alone stirs up visions of nomadic herders, thundering horses and, of course, the warrior-emperor Genghis Khan. The Mongols conquered half the known world in the 13th century and while their empire is long gone, visitors are still drawn to this land wrapped up in both myth and legend.
