Subei in Gansu

The next destination after Xinjiang is Subei (肃北) county, which is in western part of Gansu province. This is a rather dry higland grassland area. The Mongol ethnic people live in this area as nomad herders. However, many have already opted for more sendentary lives as townfolks.

The documentary crew visited a wildlife nature reserve, a family of Mongol herder, a family of talented ethnic Mongol singers  and the ruin of  ancient fort.
