ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Mongolia is one of the Asia's best kept secrets, but for those travelers who enjoy the outdoors and untouched natural beauty plus the hospitality of the nomadic people, it is a true paradise.

The Mongolian landscapes range from pristine rivers and lakes to wide-open spaces where horses, camels, yaks and reindeer graze to the Altai Mountains to the Gobi Desert. Truly, a unique environment.

Ulaanbaatar, the capital city (and the coldest in the world), is the cultural and business center of the country and offers quality museums, Buddhist temples and the famed Gandan Monastery - the most important monastery in the country, along with cafes, bars and plenty of nightlife.

Major treks of interest for the adventure traveler include the Gobi Desert; hot springs at Khangai; Khujirt, the 13th century capital of the Great Mongolian Empire; and the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan - located in the Ejin Horo Banner region.
