Ordos

ORDOS:  Area inside the great loop of the Yellow River, a critical staging area for steppe tribes at least since the second century BC. Formerly fertile grasslands combined with irrigated agriculture provided a base territory for peoples from the Xiongnu (Hönnö, first century BC) to the Choros tribe of Esen (fifteenth century). Proximity to the trade route funneled through the Gansu corridor financed the power of tribes who held Ordos. page 179
