The Shenzhou eleven re-entry capsule is supposed to land in Inner Mongolia.

The Siziwang Banner landing site is 80 kilometers north of Hohhot, the capital of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. It's the primary landing site for manned Shenzhou spacecraft, and roads have been built there to support the recovery of the spacecraft.

The site is ideal for landing due to its vast, flat grasslands. The spacecraft passes the area numerous times while in outer space, making it easy to find the area.

The Chinese space program recovery team will track the progress of the re-entry and arrive shortly after the capsule lands.
