Drive to ancient capital Kharkhorin. Kharkhorin is located at the lower end of the upper valley of the Orkhon River which is included within UNESCO's World Heritage Site Orkhon Valley Cultural Landscape. The location marks the easternmost foothills of the Khangai Mountains, where they meet the rolling steppe of central Mongolia.

Nearby are the ruins of the ancient town of Karakorum (also known as Kharkhorum or Qara Qorum) which, for a short time, served as the capital of the Mongol Empire under Ogedei Khan. Another Kharkhorin landmark isErdene Zuu monastery and its famous phallic rock. 

The Erdene Zuu Monastery is probably the earliest surviving Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. Approximately 2 km north-east from the center of Kharkhorin and adjacent to the ancient city of Karakorum.

Abtai Sain Khan, ruler of the Khalkh Mongols and grandfather of Zanabazar, the first Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, ordered construction of the Erdene Zuu monastery in 1585 after his meeting with the 3rd Dalai Lama and the declaration of Tibetan Buddhism as the state religion of Mongolia. Stones from the nearby ruins of the ancient Mongol capital of Karakorum were used in its construction. Planners attempted to create a surrounding wall that resembled a Tibetan Buddhist rosary featuring 108 stupas. The monastery's temple walls were painted, and the Chinese-style roof covered with green tiles.

Drive to Khugnu Tarni National Park via Elsen Tasarkhai. Khugnu Khan Mountain is a 470 sq km nature reserve, in Gurvanbulag sum of the Bulgan province, and is one of the legendary mountains in the history of Mongolia. Here are the remains of the "Khugnu Tarni" monastery in the Khugnu Khan Mountain, which was built in the 17th century. The mountain is rich in flora and fauna and was the venue for many historical events. The area is a beautiful combination of sand, steppe and mountains. 

This 80-km sand dune is situated in a terrain of 3 Soums, Erdenesant of Tuv Aimag, Burd of Uvurkhangai, Gurvanbulag of Bulgan Aimag, starting from west of Mount Batkhaan and stretches along west of Mount Khugnu Khan . The main road separates this sand dune into two parts, Mongol Els on the south and Khugnu Tarnyn Els on the north. The sand is sodden under its surface, so shrubberies such as willow, elm and dogwood, grow in the area. There are many tourist camps around the sight. Elsen Tasarkhai is surrounded by Mount Khugnu Khan on the north and Mount Ikh Mongol on the south. Ger camp and camel riding.

    An advantage of this trip is that you can travel through different zones while enjoying the vast open spaces with multiple natural contrasts within several days. It will approximately take 4-7 hours driving from one destination to the next. If requested we will stop on the way and you will be granted enough time for photographs or just a small pause. 4WD vehicles, mostly Russian minivans or Japanese jeeps will be used to take us through the infinite steps. Normally, 2-3 people will be in one jeep with their luggage. 7 people fit in the minivan with their luggage. Self-evidently all of our vehicles are insured and well prepared for the long trip. In the case of any damages on the vehicle, our drivers will prove their excellent mechanical knowledge, based on many years of experience, and do the repairs.

    Overnight we will be staying in tourist camps. It is nice to stay in said camps after hours on the gravel “highways” of the countryside. Most of the tourist camps are equipped with the Mongolian traditional dwelling “Ger” for the guest’s accommodation. The ger is a very convenient dwelling since it is simple to build and easy to dismantle as well. The dome-shaped housing is constructed with a wooden skeleton a felt cover and fabric on the outside. The Gers are heated by a stove and furnished with traditional wooden beds (with full sized mattresses 137x190cm) or hotel standard size beds with clean sheets, comforters, pillows and blankets. Normally, two to three beds are in one Ger. If the client prefers to stay alone in a Ger, there will be additional charges. The camp provides a restaurant/bar, toilets like you know from home and washing facilities such as a shower. The numbers of low-impact eco Ger camps are increasing. Since 2014 many Camp owners started to turn their camps into environmentally friendly concepts. We prefer cooperating with Ger camps that follow these core responsibilities and are able to provide the best services for our clients.
