The city proper of Hulunbuir itself (Hailar) has a humid continental climate (Köppen Dwb) bordering on a subarctic climate (Köppen Dwc), although the northern part of the prefecture-level city is solidly subarctic.
Summers is short, though very warm, and rather wet, due to the East Asian monsoon.
Autumn is the most beautiful season.
Winters are long, very dry and severe, due to the semi−permanent Siberian High.
Hulunbeier Grasslands are probably the finest pastures in China. In the summer, visitors can go horseback riding, view horse racing and attend wrestling matches. Campfire parties featuring whole-sheep feasts are popular. Huhenuoer Grassland and Hulun Lake are the most famous sights in that area. The lake is teeming with fish and shrimp. Hulun is the largest lake in Inner Mongolia and one of the five largest freshwater lakes in China.
