Day-2: Journey to Elsen Tasarhai
We'll start our amazing trip visiting to the winter palace museum and then head out of city to Sand Dune of Elssen Tasarhai.
Elsen Tasarhai is something of an oasis. It is located in Erdenetsogt soum in Province of Overhangai and Bulgan. It happens being crossed by the main Ulaanbaator-Kharhorin highway neighbouring with the Khogno Khan /Nature Reserve/. These large dunes strech for some 80km and are worth stopping off at for those who are not planning to visit the much more spectacular Khongoryn Els in the Gobi Desert. This is perfect place for camel riding.
Here you will be riding camel through the charming sandy hill passing by fresh river and green land. Traveling by camel at the Majesty of Elsen Tasarhai might make for some awesome photos.
Overnight in yurt camp
Day-3: Journey to Kharhorin
After breakfast, the morning begins with the museum, monastery and some other sightseeing. We'll spend a morning time till lunch learning about this city through museum and city tour.
This town contains one of Mongolian's top attraction /Erdene-zuu/ which is the oldest monastery in Mongolia and has been a regular stop on most of tour circuits. These things will take half-day.
In the mid-13th century, Karakorum was a happening place. ChinggisKhaan established a supply base here and his son Ögedei ordered the construction of a proper capital, a decree that attracted traders, dignitaries and skilled workers from across Asia and even Europe.
The good times lasted around 40 years until Kublai moved the capital to Khanbalik
(later called Bĕijīng), a decision that still incites resentment among some Mongolians. Following the move to Bĕijīng and the subsequent collapse of the Mongol empire, Karakorum was abandoned and then destroyed by vengeful Manchurian soldiers in 1388.
Whatever was left of Karakorum was used to help build, in the 16th century, ErdeneZuu monastery, which itself was badly damaged during the Stalinist purges.
The rather nondescript Soviet-built town of Kharkhorin was built a couple of kilometres away from Erdene-ZuuKhiid, and there is little of interest in the town itself.
After all this things, we carry on our trip heading to the impressive Orkhon Khurhree /Water-fall/ for the night in the traditional nomad's Ger.
Overnight in yurt camp
