Kangxi Grassland is celebrated for its superb scenery and large number of sheep and cattle. From late spring to summer, the grass begins to revive, like a quilt stretching out as far as one can see; innumerable flowers bloom, as if they are competing with each other in a beauty pageant. There are more than 50 kinds of plants in the Kangxi Grassland, such as clovers and Chrysanthemum indiums and so on, which provide a rich food source for the hares, foxes, moles and various birds. With the rising and falling sound of songs, horses dash in the scattering of Mongolian-style yurts, and sheep and cattle sport leisurely over the land. Owing to its geographical position, the grassland has a distinctive flavor with a perfect harmony of mountain, water, grass and animals.
