Preparation before departure:

Sequoia Dou is a senior travel expert. She had already planned the itinerary when she posted the post. I was the last one to join the team. After confirming, I booked the car and accommodation immediately, and made an appointment for our team members to gather for the first time. Location: Chifeng.

D1: Beijing Place: Train

There is no direct plane or train from Guangzhou to Ulan Butong. I chose Beijing as the transfer station to Chifeng. The first time I went to Beijing was in 1993, and I went there twice during that period. This time, it was the fourth time I came to Beijing. It was already 5:00 pm when I arrived at Changping Railway Station, and I took the train at 8:00 pm.

D2: Chifeng-Ulan Butong Accommodation: Ulan Butong Yuntian Holiday Hotel (269KM, 6 hours)

Arrive at Chifeng Station at 6:05 in the morning.

Sequoia Dou and the others arrived at Chifeng yesterday, brought the little white-collar back, and finally assembled with the team members. At 8:30, according to the driving route planned by Sequoia Dou, we bypassed the Saihanba Scenic Area (passing tickets must be paid), transferred from Daguang Expressway and Chengwei Expressway to Provincial Highway 351 in Bazi Township, and then along Yudaokou Township The Yuke line goes to Ulan Butong.

Autumn has already entered on both sides of the road, a bright yellow...

At 2 o'clock in the afternoon, we finally arrived in Ulan Butong. After a rest at the hotel at 3:30, we drove to Princess Lake

Princess Lake originally wanted to watch the sunset, but the clouds were too thick, but I saw a different kind of autumn scenery...

D3: Ulan Butong Accommodation: Ulan Butong Yuntian Holiday Hotel (Beigou-Wild Duck Lake-Colorful Mountain-Grand Canyon-Toad Dam)

Today is the Mid-Autumn Festival. In order to watch the sunrise in Beigou, we got up at 5:30 and went to the foot of Beigou Mountain. There were already dense crowds of people standing on the hillside.

Climbing halfway up the mountain, a morning mist

Soon the sun came out

After walking through Beigou, I went back to the Army Horse Farm to have breakfast, and walked along the Wild Duck Lake, Wucai Mountain, and the Grand Canyon...

After eating at 1:00 noon, head to Hamaba

While visiting Hatoba, I met a team that recruited their team members to watch the grazing, and we followed suit.

Sequoia Dou and Ye Zi chatted with one of the management staff while watching the grazing, and they knew that his family had a farmyard, so they decided to have dinner at his house this Mid-Autumn Festival, because his family raised free-range chickens (a small plate of chicken) Stewed free-range chicken with mushrooms, a large plate of mutton dumplings eaten by his family during the festival, started our first chicken meal, and we ate a total of 5 free-range chickens from Inner Mongolia during this journey).

The guide said that we can see the sunset in Hamoba, but we found that the sun went down, and we couldn’t find the place. We only saw the cattle returning home in the canyon river...

D4: Ulan Butong Accommodation: Ulan Butong Yuntian Holiday Hotel (Tufenggou)

Today's main itinerary is through the wind ditch, so we don't start until 9 o'clock. The weather is cloudy all the way, but it can't cover up the autumn scenery of the Bashang grassland.

Walking through the fork in Princess Lake, there are always washboard roads and dirt roads.

When we arrived at Tufenggou, it was already past twelve o'clock at noon. After eating some dry food, we climbed to the top of the mountain.

Walked around the wind ditch and had lunch in a small farmyard next to the foot of the mountain. It was almost 3 o'clock. On the way back, I met a large convoy. I took a few photos of the ranch surrounded by barbed wire. When I found out that the original charge was 1,000 yuan per car, I immediately withdrew...

In the evening, the sky reveals a ray of sunshine, shining on a herd of cattle

D5: Ulan Butong-Chifeng Accommodation: Holiday Inn Express Chifeng Hongshan (the whole journey is 269KM, the time is 7 hours)

At 8 o'clock in the morning, after breakfast, I went to Panlong Canyon, a little disappointed

Drive along the dirt road all the way to the depths, only to find that the garden is full of autumn colors...

At 11:00, we left Ulan Butong and returned to Chifeng the same way. At 1:30 noon, I came to Daobazi Township to eat our second free-range chicken, fried chicken cooked by Sequoia Dou himself. Return to Chifeng at 6:00 pm.

D6: Chifeng-Tongliao-Hailar Overnight: All Seasons Hotel (Hulunbeier Railway Station Branch)

In the morning, take the train to Tongliao at 8:19, arrive at Tongliao at 12:15 noon, and transfer to the plane in Tongliao to Hailar at 5:40 pm. Two students who returned to Tongliao on vacation happened to be sitting next to the train. Under their introduction, they found a famous local sheep restaurant for lunch, and found a pedicure in Meituan to rest if there was still time. It was already 6:50 p.m. when we arrived at Hailaer Airport. We picked up the rented Xiaobai at the airport. The airport is very close to the urban area. As soon as we walked into the urban area, we were faced with a golden and brilliant light......

D7: Hailar-Enhe Accommodation: Enhe Yifan Manor (455 kilometers in total, about 8 and a half hours)

From Hailar to Enhe at 8:00 in the morning, turn to Provincial Highway 301 and 201 along National Highway 332, pass Erguna, Genhe, birch forest, upper and lower forests, cloudy and rainy all the way, but it can't stop the autumn scenery all the way …

It was around 4:00 in the afternoon when I came to Enhe Russian Nationality Township. In the evening, I ate the third chicken stewed with small mushrooms at Ivan Manor.

D8: Enhe-Bajianfang-Taipingchuan-Linjiangtun Accommodation: Linjiang Maria Liebafang House (the whole journey is 198KM, time 6 hours)

We got up at 7 o'clock, Enhe's early morning was a bit foggy

I went back to the manor and had breakfast, asked the boss about the surrounding situation, and drove to the hill ahead

We left Enhe at 10:00 and headed for Linjiangtun, along Provincial Highway 201, then County Highway 901, passing through Bajianfang and Taipingchuan.

At noon, I ate the fourth free-range chicken in Taipingchuan. I chose the township road from Taipingchuan to Linjiangtun. The road conditions were not very good, but the car could pass. It was 29 kilometers. We walked for 2 and a half hours while playing.

I came to Linjiangtun at 4 o'clock, took a rest for a while, and drove to the viewing platform of Linjiangtun. Unfortunately, I didn't see the sunset. On the other side of the river is Russia

D9: Linjiangtun - Shiwei - Jiuka - Qika - Heishantou Town Accommodation: Rainbow Hotel, Heishantou Town (183KM, 7 hours)

Get up at 5:30 in the morning, drive to the back mountain to watch the sunrise, the clouds are too thick

At 8 o'clock, go to Shiwei along County Road 904 and Erguna Boundary River

There are patches of grassland on both sides of the county road 904. The grassland between Jiuka and Qika is transporting grass

Grass being loaded

At noon, I ate the fifth free-range chicken at Qika. Arrive at Heishantou Town at 4:00 p.m., take a rest at the hotel, and then drive to Heishantou Wetland to watch the sunset

D10: Heishantou Town - Wuka - Heishantou Town - Manzhouli Accommodation: Manzhouli Triumph Hotel (320KM, 8 hours)

I came to the wetland again at 8:30 in the morning to make up for the regret of not going earlier yesterday afternoon.

In order to shoot the sunset in the wetland yesterday, I bypassed the five cards, and made up for it today. When Wuka was walking along the boundary river, he inadvertently saw someone carrying fish out of the barbed wire fence on the boundary, and walked in curiously. It turned out that there were two couples fishing and selling fish in the boundary river.

At noon in Montenegro, eat delicious Erguna Boundary River fish

Along the county road 904, turn to Haiman first-class highway and arrive at Manzhouli at 5:00 pm, because I have little interest in man-made scenic spots, so I only passed Guomen Scenic Spot and Taoxing Square

D11: Manzhouli - Hulun Lake - Mozhgrad River - Hailar Accommodation: Hanting Hotel (626 Road, Hailar) (Full journey: 506KM, time 9 and a half hours)

Today’s journey is quite long. At 8 o’clock, the coastal full-class highway turned to National Highway 332 and rushed to Mozhgrad to watch the sunset, so when I went to Hulun Lake, I only walked around the door and didn’t go in. I arrived at the Mozhgrad Grassland Scenic Spot at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and the road to the viewing platform was blocked. There are only two choices, one to go to the viewing platform of the Golden Horde Khan tribe or walk up the nearby hills, we chose the second option.

Back in Hailar, the time just returned Xiaobai, and finally successfully completed the first stage of the itinerary. In the evening, our four teammates had a good meal of mutton. Tomorrow, my three teammates will go home separately. Thank you, this wonderful journey is only possible because of you.

D12: Hailar-Harbin Xisu: Train (mileage: 790KM, time 9 hours and 52 minutes)

Huangyuan went to the airport at 6:00 in the morning. His flight was more than an hour earlier than Sequoia Dou and the others. I took the train at 8:00 in the evening to Harbin. There are no good attractions in Hailar District in this season, so I didn’t get up until after 11 o’clock. I communicated with the hotel and delayed my check-out until 3 o’clock. I went directly to the train station, stored my luggage, and found Tianyi International Cinema near the station. City, watched the first movie "Wu Shuang".

D13: Harbin-Tianjin Accommodation: Train (mileage: 1227KM, time 16 hours and 58 minutes)

Arrive at Harbin West at 6 am, take the bus to Harbin Station, and the train to Tianjin is at 8:45 pm. How do you know that Harbin Station is being remodeled, you have to go to the South Square by train to get on the train, go around a circle, store your luggage, it’s almost 8 o’clock, and go directly to the scenic spot on foot

Hagia Sophia (under renovation)

Central Street, Songhua River

Coming out of the Shenwu Gate at the North Gate, we visited Beihai Park along the way.

After returning to Shili Peach Blossom Youth Hostel, it was just after 5 pm, and I watched the third movie "Golden Brothers" at the nearby Dongrong International Cinema (Caoqiao Branch).

D16: Beijing Accommodation: Beijing Shili Peach Blossom Youth Hostel

The Mutianyu Great Wall was recommended by the captain, and there are much fewer people than Badaling. Its precipitous towering, beautiful scenery, and long history are one of the new sixteen scenic spots in Beijing. I woke up early at 6:30 this morning. I booked a round-trip ticket for Mubashi to the Mutianyu Great Wall. I arrived at the meeting place: Exit C of Line 2 (Dongsishiertiao Station), and it was already past 8 o’clock.

The Mutianyu Great Wall is opened from the fourth to the 20th, with a length of 5,400 meters. The road from the 21st to the 23rd has been overgrown with weeds, and the roads have been in disrepair for a long time. However, it is majestic and magnificent. kind of charm
