camel

Kong Camel trains have also long been used in portions of trans-Asian trade, including the Silk Road. As late as the early twentieth century, camel caravans played an important role connecting the Beijing Shanxi region of eastern China with Mongolian centers (Urga (Ulan Bator), Uliastai, Kobdo) and Xinjiang. The routes went across Inner (Inner Mongolia) and or Outer (Mongolia) Mongolia. According to Owen Lattimore, who spent five months in 1926 crossing

the northern edge of China (from Hohhot to Gucheng (Qitai County), via Inner Mongolia) with a camel caravan, demand for caravan trade was only increased by the arrival of foreign steamships into Chinese ports and the construction of the first railways in eastern China, as they improved access to the world market for such products of western China as wool. Lattimore, Owen 1928 9 ''The Desert Road to Turkestan''. London, Methuen and Co; & various later editions. Caravan

logistics and organization is discussed in Chap. VIII, "Camel-Men All"; route maps are found inside the back cover. While organization of camel caravans varied over time and the territory tranversed, Owen Lattimore's account of caravan life in northern China in the 1920s gives a good idea of what camel transport is like. In his ''Desert Road to Turkestan'' he describes mostly camel caravans run by Han Chinese and Hui (Hui people) firms from eastern China

Since the caravan traveled at the walking speed of the men, the distance made in a day (a &quot

Its population was 2,866,615 inhabitants at the 2010 census whom 1,980,774 lived in the built-up (''or metro'') area made up of 4 urban districts.

The name of the city in Mongolian means "Blue City"—Kuku-Khoto in Mongolian—although it is also wrongly referred to as the "Green City." Perkins (1999), p. 212. The color blue in Mongol culture is associated with the sky, eternity and purity; in Chinese, the name can be translated as ''Qīng Chéng'' ( ), literally, "Blue Green (Distinguishing blue from green in language#Chinese) City." Chinese "qing" has traditionally been a color between "blue" and "green" in English, leading some modern sources to translate ''Qing Cheng'' into English as "Green City" instead of "Blue City," including, for example, the official website of Hohhot.
