Overview
Discover the highlights of the Mongolian centerpiece and steppe. Breathtaking landscapes and the warm hospitality of the nomads will remain unforgettable.

We visit the place where the capital of the Mongolian Empire existed and one of the important monasteries and onward journey over a varied route to the waterfall. Dressing, we will explore on foot the wonderful nature with eight-sea. We drive on to a spectacular place "Elsen Tasarkhai" with combinations of the sand dune and green, rocky mountain landscape.
