The vast grasslands have always been symbolic of Inner Mongolia. Mongolian art often depicts the grassland in an uplifting fashion, emphasizing on the nomadic traditions of the Mongolian. The Mongols practice many traditional cuisine, largely derived from the tradition of ethnic Mongols, consists of dairy-related products and hand-held lamb .

Name
In Chinese, the region is known as "Inner Mongolia", where the terms of "Inner/ Outer" are derived from Manchu dorgi/ tulergi. Inner Mongolia is distinct from Outer Mongolia, which was a term used by the Republic of China and previous governments to refer to what is now the independent state of Mongolia plus the Republic of Tuva in Russia. In Mongolian, the region is known as south, inner, front, bosom, breast. Some Mongolians use the name "Southern Mongolia" in English too.

Jurchen, Tujue, and Mongol nomads of the north. Eastern Inner Mongolia is properly speaking a part of Manchuria , and its historical narrative consists more of alternations between different groups there rather than the struggle between nomads and Chinese agriculturalists.

"Outer Mongolia", while a small portion is with Russia. Since the 1990s, numerous Leagues have converted into prefecturelevel cities, although Banners remain. Due to its size, Inner Mongolia has a wide variety of temperatures but the following climactic characteristics apply provincialwide: four-season monsoon-influenced climate, with long, cold, very dry winters, quick and dry springtime and autumnal transitions (the former of which is prone to sandstorms), and very warm to hot summers. Generally, cold arid or steppe climatic regimes (Koppen BWk, respectively) dominate, but there are some areas classified as humid continental (Koppen Dwb), located primarily in higher elevations and in the northeast, and subarctic (Koppen Dwc), located in the far north.

Administrative divisions
Inner Mongolia is divided into 12 prefecture-level divisions. Until the late 1990s, most of Inner Mongolia's prefectural regions were known as Leagues, a usage retained from Mongol divisions of the Qing Dynasty. Similarly, county-level divisions are often known as Banners. The restructuring led to the conversion of primate cities in most leagues to convert to districts administratively (Hailar, Jining, and Dongsheng). Some newly founded prefecture-level cities have chosen to retain the original name of League , some have adopted the Chinese name of their primate city (Chifeng, Tongliao), and one League, Ikh Juu, simply renamed itself Ordos. Despite these recent administrative changes, there is no indication that the Alxa, Hinggan, and Xilin Gol Leagues will convert to prefecturelevel cities in the near future.
