China travel guide

China - Ningxia (Chapter)

14th Edition May 2015

This is the Níngxià chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Níngxià was once the frontline between the empires of the Mongols and the Han Chinese and there is a host of historic sites here, ranging from little-seen Buddhist statues to the royal tombs of long-past dynasties, as well as ancient rock carvings that predate any emperor. And as the homeland of the Muslim Hui ethnic minority, Níngxià is culturally unique, too.

  • head to the imperial Western Xia Tombs outside Yínchuān, a rare reminder of this long-extinct culture
  • maps
  • slide down the sand dunes at desert playground Shāpōtóu
  • transport
  • visit the little-seen Buddhist grottoes with hundreds of statues at Xūmí Shān
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Yínchuān & around, Zhōngwèi & around, and Gùyuán & around.
