The great part is that you can experience this all in a single central part of the country.

Mongolia is the ultimate adventure destination in the sense of embracing all types of natural zones from sheer mountain ranges and ice glaciers to singing sand dunes and hot spring waters. And the great part is that you can experience this all in a single central part of the country.
First up the Terelj National Park; where the nature is articulated in great combination of sheer granite mountains, open fields and river. Visit to the tallest horseman-statue in the world, dedicated to Mongolian legendary emperor - Chinggis or Genghis Khan, and Khustai National Park, a home to Przewalski wild horses, is also included in your convenience on the way to Karakorum city.
Karakorum city, which once served as the capital of Mongolian Empire and an essential station of the Silk Road, has much more to share than its current physical appearance. Mongolian largest and the historically most significant religious and cultural center - Erdenezuu monastery - is operating as a museum there. Some historical artefacts can be found on the way to Ugii Lake, which is home to a different species of birds and where you can enjoy fresh fishes which can be caught even by yourself. In contrast to Terelj, next stop will be Elsen Tasarkhai, marvellous oasis with sand dunes, vegetations, lake and birds, an hour drive from Karakorum.
