Shizuishan

The city of Shizuishan is the second city of the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. It’s located on the west bank of the Yellow River and situated north of Yinchuan, towards the border to Inner Mongolia. Being near a desert, a river and mountains, Shizuishan has a temperate continental climate and a lot of it’s economy is driven by industry. There are numerous sites close-by including the famous Sand Lake, the rock carvings of Mount Helan, Shui Dong Gou as well as other Ming Dynasty Great Wall sites. This city along with Yinchuan serve as a great base for exploring the lesser-known parts of western China. It is also a gateway to the northwest region of Gansu province and the city of Kashgar.
Travellers are advised to travel to this region in the early autumn months when it isn’t too cold or hot. Shizuishan is located in the north of the Ningxia Autonomous Region, therefore it is subject to some desert storms and cold weather conditions in the evening; even during the summer months.
