Once served as the capital of Mongolian Empire and an essential station of the Silk Road, Karakorum city has much more to share than its current physical appearance. Elsen Tasarkhai, marvelous Oasis with Sand Dunes, vegetations, lake and birds is located close to Karakorum. Therefore, during this trip, you have the chance to experience noteworthy historical-religious-natural and adventurous side of Mongolia.
If you get up early, you have a great chance to see some wild animals such as wild sheep, ibex, wolf etc. Have breakfast and proceed towards Khogno Khaan Mountain, which is 285 Kilometer from Ulaan Baatar. This area represents a unique picture of the natural contrast combining the Mongolian desert Gobi, landscapes of Hangaj and Rocky Mountains. In 1220 Karkhorum was built and was the capital of Mongolia for 140 years. In 1338, the city was massively destroyed and Erdenezuu Buddhist Monastery where we have visited was founded in 1586 at the city’s ruin. Stay the night at tourist Ger camp where you will have your dinner.
