Thank you some of you for replying to my previous queries.

Maybe i should consider another place. Anyone has any idea on Mongolia in April. Again, I travel from Beijing and hope to get information on train, activities, hotel, package etc. I am really intereted to stay in those typical tent and also maybe some horse riding as well. Hopefully to make a one week trip .

Thanks

Are you going to there by yourself?

Since the grassland are all in the remote location, I suggest you fist go there by train and then find a local agency who can arrange your itinerary, so that you won't need worry about the transportation and accommodation.

To be frank, the best season to go to grassland is in July and Aug. In April, the grass just starts turning green.

The train info:
K89 Beijing --Hohhot
Starts at 21:00 
Arrive at 07:20(next day) 
ticket:
160yuan for a hard sleeper
250yuan for a soft sleeper

Hi, YIPSUE
The train is a daily one.
Tickets can be obtained from the ticket office of Railway Station, or the reception of your hotel (maybe some service fee around RMB50 per ticket), as well as from internet with some service charge. I don't think it is difficult to get the train tickets in China, except for the period of three national holidays.
