“It worth a visit”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

The place is one hour driving from Oros and four hours from Hohhot, so yes it is far, but we loved the spot.
Maybe we are kind of historians nerds, but it is nice to see his descendants coming every day to pay their tribute to the father of a nation.
The place is a kind of museum, as no one know for sure were Genghis Khan is finally resting, even the drawings of him are based only in testimonials of his resemblance with his grandson Kublai Khan.
Nevertheless the place worth the visit

“History lovers will love it”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

History lovers will love it. However, non history lovers will find this place a bore as it's not conveniently located.

Genghis Khan's mausoleum is located ordos yijing huoluo area, coming to this area have special meaning of mongolians people, the histoy of our mongolia are world know, and definately the great hero, the different people have differt opinions.
There are two different parts in mausoleum, one are for most chinese tour group area, another are behind area, the highlights are behind real mausoleum, be careful not cheat,,frount are not really worth seeing.
The mongolian kept tradtional mongolian worship hero gestures nowdays still kept. they also held Nadam fetivel around area. you can also eat real lamb in a mongolian family.
Door tickets RMB 110/Person. english guide chaolu also good explain the culture and their own monglians.

“Not really worth the trip”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

The mausoleum is not in a convenient location travel-wise and it certainly isn't informative or that interesting. If you really happen to be in the area, you might enjoy seeing the buildings and taking some pictures. I would rather spend my time in the desert when visiting Inner Mongolia.

“Genghis Khan trivia”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

Interesting memorial site dedicated to Genghiz Khan. If you love trivia or are a history buff, you will love this place. Lots of statues and exhibits, but nothing interactive. Colourful with great photo opportunities.
