Finally, sit down with the locals for one of the most popular dish- Mogolia Hotpot, accompanied by an ice-cold beer.

The hot pot has a long history of over 1,000 years in China. It used to be favored only in winter, but recently it appears on tables all year round. Beside its delicious flavor, there are two other important reasons for the deep affinity with hot pot of Chinese people. The first one is that hot pot is a visual symbol of warm, enthusiasm and family gathering. The other is that hot pot is a kind of “healthy meal”. Boiling is better than frying, and bone nutrients are released into the broth. Eating hot pot can warm the body and improve blood circulation in winter, and increase perspiration to help cool the body in summer.

Once arrive at the restaurant, your meal will served with a big pot filled with hot water and surrounded by plates of raw meats and vegetables.. Don’t worry about what to order and how — your guide will provide tips.

At the end of the trip you are free to continue exploring the area or your guide will assist you with directions or a taxi back to your hotel( On your own expense).
