Along the way you drive through a typical, beautiful Mongolian landscape of endless grassy plains and rolling hills where nomads have made camp and where you can see herds of yaks, horses, goats and sheep grazing.
Day 2 Khogno Khaan - Tsenkher via KharkorinToday you will travel to the hot springs at Tsenker. Along the way you first visit one of the cultural highlights of Mongolia, Kharkorin. Kharkorin, the ancient capital of the Mongol Empire, is better known as Karakorum. The city was built in 1235 and was the capital of the famous Mongol Empire until Kublai Khan moved the capital to Beijing. Kharkorin is located in the Orkhon Valley, the heart of Mongolian culture. The city itself is doesn’t have much to see, but we can visit the famous Erdene Zuu Monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. You will then travel to a ger camp at Tsenker where you can relax in the natural hot springs.
Day 3 Tsenkher - Tuvkhun KhiidOne of the most beautifully-situated monasteries in Mongolia is that of Tuvkhun Khiid. This important pilgrimage site was founded in 1653 by the monk Zanabazar. Around the monastery there are several temples and hermitages. The monastery is located in the beautiful Khangai Nuruu National Park.
Day 4 Tuvkhun - Khustai National ParkToday you will travel to the Khustai National Park. This park is home to the endangered Przewalski horse, the only remaining species of truly wild horse in the world. They are also called Takhi horses. They had become extinct in the wild in the 1960’s, but in 1992, 15 horses were brought from western zoos and released in their natural habitat. Today there are some 250 horses in the park. There are other wild animals that can be found here, as well, including gazelles , wolves, deer, and many bird species. There are also many nomads living in the park, and you can get acquainted with their lifestyle. You can also find Turkish tombstones that are over a thousand years old. Tonight you will spend the night in a ger camp.
Day 5 Khustai - Ulan BatorToday you return to the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator. Here you can visit the central Sukhbaatar Square, the Museum of National History, and the main monastery of the country, the Gandan Monastery. This monastery, known locally as Gandantegchilin, is the only monastery that continued to function under Soviet rule, although it was primarily a museum. Since 1990 it has regained its religious function.
