When planning a holiday in Mongolia, here are just a few of the more popular tourist spots in Mongolia that should not be missed:
Gorkhi-Terelj National Park – One of the national parks in Mongolia, the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park is a protected zone in the Töv Province. The park is home to beautiful rock formations, rolling hills and lush plateaus that have been well maintained. A small area in the park, specifically the southern area, is developed for tourists with restaurants, shops and camps where visitors can rent horses and camels. Other attractions include a Buddhist monastery open to visitors, a 20-meter deep glacial lake called the Khaglin Khar Lake and the Yestii Hot Water Springs.
Winter Palace of the Bogd Khan – Located in Southern Ulan Bator, the Winter Palace of the Bogd Khan is a complex containing six temples. It was originally the winter residence of Bogd Khan, the enthroned Khagan of Mongolia upon the declaration of independence from the Qing Dynasty after the Xinhai Revolution. The palace is the last remaining of the original four residences of Bogd Khan. It is preserved for its historical and architectural significance. The six temples display many of Bogd Khan’s possessions including his collection of art and stuffed animals, his ornate ceremonial gear and ceremonial boots, his bed and throne.
Naran Tuul Market – A traditional shopping arcade locate in the east of the city center of Ulan Bator, the Naran Tuul Market has everything from food items, to traditional Mongolian clothes, to novelty items, local delicacies and antiques. This is a popular destination for tourists to shop for souvenirs and memorabilia.
Khuiten Uul – The highest point in the Tavan Bogd range, the Khuiten Uul stands at 4,374 meters tall. It is popular to travelers, especially adventure seekers who dare to climb and conquer the Tavan Bogd. There are no rental shops or stores to get mountaineering equipment here so a trip to the Khuiten Uul should be planned well. It is said that the best time to climb would be within the months of August and September, after the worst of the summer rains end.
Erdene Zuu Monastery – Considered to be the oldest surviving monastery in the country, the Erdene Zuu Monastery is a valuable treasure for Mongolia. The monastery was commissioned by the ruler of Khalkh Mongols, Abtai Sain Khan, in 1585 after a meeting with the third Dalai Lama and the declaration of Tibetan Buddhism as the state religion of Mongolia. The monastery was damaged back in 1688 during one of the many battles between the Dzungars and the Khalk Mongols. Since rebuilt, it has 62 temples that housed around 1,000 monks. Visitors to the area will find numerous types of temples as well as symbols of Buddhism including stupas and figures of the Buddha.
