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. Therefore, visit to the two main natural zones are included in this trip. 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, is also included in your convenience on the way to the next destination.

Our next destination will be Karakorum city, which once served as the capital of Mongolian Empire and an essential station of the Silk Road; and thus 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. In contrast to Terelj, next stop will be Elsen Tasarkhai, marvellous oasis with sand dunes, vegetations, lake and birds, an hour drive from Karakorum
