Kharkhorin & The Gobi Desert Tour


  • Maximise a short visit to Mongolia

    If you only have time for a short visit to Mongolia and want to fit in the most important and well-known sites, you must visit Kharkhorin and the Gobi Desert. Make day trips to see beautiful and unusual sights in the region, and probably get a chance to ride horses and camels.

    Kharkhorin was the site of Genghis Khaan's capital in the thirteenth century

    After the city was destroyed by invading Manchurians a huge Buddhist monastery was built in the valley. During the Stalinist era of the last century many of the temples were destroyed, but the monastery is again active and at present has about 40 monks of all ages. During the trip you will see mountain, steppe and desert landscapes, as well as experiencing the nomadic lifestyle of the people.
