Train connections run from the South via Lanzhou, or from the North through the city of Baotou. High speed rail connections have not yet reached to Yinchuan.
For transportation within Ningxia, trains and cars are the best choice. Travel easily from Yinchuan to key sites in Ningxia Autonomous Region such as Zhongwei and Guyuan in the South.
