Mongolia in late Oct

by lizandbillf

Hi, We are thinking of visiting Mongolia for a 7 day vacation the last week in Oct (yes in 2 weeks!). We will be bringing our two young intrepid travelers (ages 4 and 7). I know it can be a bit chilly, the temp on average is around freezing, but I am more concerned if there will be anything for us to do or see this late in the season. What is the Gobi like? Are there any Gar camps left up or has everyone retreated for the winter?

Any thoughts and info folks can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Mongolia in late Oct

by TomJenner

It is already getting cold in Mongolia by now, but should be bearable if you have the right clothing. What you need to be most careful of is that the temperatures can plummet, even in the middle of the summer. You will need to travel with plenty of winter clothing just in case. Last year I went to the Gobi with my wife, 3 year old son and some friends. We stayed at the 3 camels lodge (http://www.threecamellodge.com/), which is an upmarket ger camp. Most other camps are closed by that time. We went in early November and we were the last to stay at the camp before it closed for the winter. Apparently, October is the best time as its not too hot and the cold weather has still not started properly. It is noticably warmer than in Ulaanbaatar. However, when we were there it cooled a lot and there was an unseasonal snow storm. We were confined to the ger camp for one of the days, but we enjoyed playing in the snow with our son. There are a few places to visit from the camp. You will need to arrange a vehicle and driver to take you to the camp from Dalanzadgad (and remain with you for your stay). Its not a cheap trip, but its not that high either.

Travel Tips for Ulaanbaatar

Genghis Khan - The man

by Willettsworld

Not many historical figures are bigger than their country but Genghis Khan (1162-1227) was certainly one of them. In the west he's always been perceived as a great statesman and warrior of the Mongol empire who knew of no limits or boundaries. He came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia and he pursued an aggressive foreign policy by starting the Mongol invasions of East and Central Asia. During his life, the Mongol Empire eventually occupied most of Asia and his descendants went on to stretch the Mongol Empire across most of Eurasia by conquering all of modern-day China, Korea, Caucasus, Central Asian countries and substantial portions of modern Russia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. It's no wonder, then, that he is revered among Mongolians. For example, it is not uncommon for Mongolians to refer to Mongolia as "Genghis Khan's Mongolia," to themselves as "Genghis Khan's children," and to Genghis Khan as the "father of the Mongols" especially among the younger generation. His name and likeness are endorsed on products such as beer, vodka and biscuits; streets, buildings such as hotels and even the airport, and other places. His face can be found on everyday commodities, from liquors to the largest denominations of banknote. Put simply, he's the biggest name in Mongolia and his image is widely used for the tourist industry and on souvenirs. You simply won't be able to avoid him!

Prayer wheel

by yumyum

As in all Buddhist monastery and town, somewhere there is bound to be a big prayer wheel. The wheel contains the holy writings and in order to pray you just turn it clockwise and that's the direction to walk too.

This one is located in Gandan monastery.

KHARKHORIN or KARAKORUM : ERDENE ZUU MONASTERY

by swesn

Kharkhorin is ‘only’ 8 hours away from Ulaan Baator. That is near compared to how spread out the rest of Mongolian civilisations are.

Karakorum, the name of the old town, was Chinggis Khan's capital in the 13th century but it only served as the capital for 40 years. After the capital was moved to Beijing by Kublai Khan, Krakorum was abandoned and destroyed by the Manchurians.

The present town of Kharkhorin was built on the same spot and is now just a dusty little town, with wooden houses and a few abandoned containers that are converted into shops and eateries.

The weather here can be harsh. The houses are surrounded by wooden fences to protect them against the fierce, vicious wind. The day we were there, we experienced a sand storm.

The claim to fame here is the Erdene Zuu Monastery which was the first centre of Lamaism in Mongolia. The monastery was also destroyed by Manchurians and Stalinist purges during the 1930s.

It probably had between 60 to 100 temples but now, only 3 remained. It is set in a large monastery ground surrounded by 108 stupas (lucky number for Buddhists).

To go there, take a minivan in front of Sukhbaator Square to Dragon Centre. Ask someone who knows English and Mongolian (Nassan’s family) to write down on a piece of paper so that you can show to the passing minivans until you find the right one.

At Dragon Centre, there is a sign that reads ‘Kharkhorin’ and the minivans leave when full. Get there before 8am. The minivans are in questionable conditions and the journey is on harsh road conditions but you get there, somehow…

Things vary from place to...

by dbbayar

Things vary from place to place, so I like drinking beer in Han Braue in summer time, they serve outside. Pizza de la Case has the best pizzas in the City. Seoul is nice but little bit expensive. Berlin Burger is perfect for a quick bite.

Gandan Monestary

by victorwkf

The Gandan Monestary is the biggest and most famous Buddhist monestary in Ulaanbaatar and is conveniently located in the city centre. The structures in Gandann are very impressive and there is very close link between Buddhism in Mongolia and Tibet.
