History
Ningxia and its surrounding areas were incorporated into the Qin Dynasty as early as the third century BC. Throughout the Han Dynasty and the Tang Dynasty there were further evidence of settlements, and by the eleventh century the Tangut tribe had established the Western Xia Dynasty on the outskirts of the then Song Dynasty.It then came under Mongol domination after Genghis Khan conquered Yinchuan in the early thirteenth century.
In 1958, the People’s Republic of China formally founded Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
Tourism
One of Ningxia’s main tourist spots is the famous Xixia Tombs site located 30 km west of Yinchuan. The remnants of nine Western Xia emperors’ tombs and two hundred other tombs lie within a 50-km² area. Other famous sites in Ningxia include Helan Shan, the mysterious 108 dagobas, the twin pagodas of Baisikou and the desert research outpost at Shapatou.
