Road trip in JinJiangGou camping and Arxan National Forest Park | Inner Mongolia 2021 | Day 14-16

The worst road on our road trip and was worried if the caravan can survive it. By nature in Jin Jiang Gou camping and Arxan National Forest Park.

We got our towing bar fixed and can continue the road trip. Heading for the city of Jinjianggou and on the way stopping at some places.

WW2 memorial on the way

Nuomenhan Battle Relic Site Exhibition Hall. A shortstop at a big battleground memorial where the Russian and Japanese forces battled for 135 days. More than 200.000 soldiers, 500 cannons, 900 planes, and 1000 tanks fought fiercely in this area. Let this be a memory of how cruel war can be. Young people born after the war cannot imagine this.

The worst road we have ever driven in China

The worst road we have ever taken during our trip is near Jin Jiang Gou camping and Arxan National Forest Park. It was 50km of pure pain and torture for our car and caravan. The maximum speed of 30km/h and even slower in some parts. Heavy trucks and buses pass us by, and we wonder how the passengers feel bouncing around. The new road is being built beside it, and the old one is not maintained much anymore. I hope this is ready in 2022 so others don’t need to experience this. The car and the caravan finally survived this torture and now setting up the camp. We were ready quite late and needed to prepare and rest for the next day’s activities.

Jin Jiang Gou camping and Arxan National Forest Park are so close

After bouncing on the road for a couple of hours, we arrived at the campground. It was a pleasant surprise to see how well-maintained it was. Excellent space for the caravan with electricity and water + small wooden terrace with bench and table. It was already late when the caravan had been set up, quick dinner and headed to bed.

The next day we had a full day at Arxan National Forest Park rated in 2017 as an AAAAA tourist destination. The Air Quality Index of the air in Arxan is a breath of clean air. The park is very close to the camping, and the main entrance is only 500m away. As usual, climbing the thousands of stairs and enjoying the views. The place is well maintained, and the stairs have several platforms where you can take a rest. Inner Mongolia has been a positive surprise in all ways. Especially nature which stands mostly untouched. I hope the tremendous amount of tourism will not destroy this. During our trip, we have not seen many tourists anywhere. This is mostly because locals don’t have the same holidays as foreigners. The long summer holiday in China is not so typical. More concentrated on Chinese New year and harvest holidays.

Stars in Inner Mongolia at JinJiangGou camping during our road trip

We could see the stars, there was no pollution in the air. Almost impossible in Shanghai or other bigger cities. I’m still struggling with my camera. I don’t remember the settings and always get blurry pictures. I need to watch many more YouTube videos.

Be reminded to fill the gasoline tank in Jin Jiang Gou as the distances between gasoline stations get longer.
