The steppe is a huge green scroll with a total area of 2.05 million mu. In the middle of summer, the flowers are extremely beautiful and the air is fresh, the gable tents of the stars are rising, and the meandering stream is like a silver ribbon dancing on the grassland. The breeze blows, the grass wiggles, the blue sky and the white clouds, the endless grassland, the herd of cattle, the galloping horses.
