river on hilly lands

Although this stamp is  from China, the horses made me think of Mongolia. And sure enough, it turns out this river is in Inner Mongolia
Outer Mongolia is what we now know as simply Mongolia. Inner Mongolia is an autonomous region of northern China. 
This is how to spell the full name in Mongol script Mongolian:ᠦᠪᠦᠷ ᠮᠣᠩᠭᠤᠯ ᠤᠨ ᠥᠪᠡᠷᠲᠡᠭᠡᠨ ᠵᠠᠰᠠᠬᠤ ᠣᠷᠤᠨ
 I was all set to use this stamp for R, but when I looked into finding the name, it turned out that this winding river is called Xilinguole, in the Xilinguole Grassland National Nature Reserve which covers an area of 10,786 square kilometers. The name Xilinguole means river on hilly lands in Mongolian. (though it looks pretty flat in this view)

  1. I hadn't noticed the horses on Eva's smaller scan, it looks an amazing landscape.

  2. Wonderful, and i too liver the way the horses are depicted.

  3. Looks surreal. Would love to see the real thing.

  4. I missed the horses on Eva's too. Great stamp.
