Mongolia is definitely one of the best country I’ve been to so far, way up there with New Zealand!
I spent 2 weeks in Mongolia, starting my trip in Ulaanbator and went off independently with my friends to Sainshand for a few days before going on a week tour in the Gobi desert.
During those time I had the opportunity to experience what life is like living as a nomad, not having electricity, internet access, flushing toilets, a regular shower and needless to say, I came out of this experience a changed man.
Mongolia, a nation bordered by China and Russia, is known for vast, rugged expanses and nomadic culture. Its capital, Ulaanbaatar, centers around Chinggis Khaan (Genghis Khan) Square, named for the notorious founder of the 13th- and 14th-century Mongol Empire. Also in Ulaanbaatar are the National Museum of Mongolia, displaying historic and ethnographic artifacts, and the restored 1830 Gandantegchinlen Monastery.
