    The countryside. Fly north-east in the Altai mountains, ride on horsback or walk. Its not that easy on altitudes of about 2400 - 2900 Meters but great.

    I saw the Buddhist pray with their head against the shrines and tried the same.

    Naadam Festival

    by Mantus Written Feb 28, 2013

    The Naadam in Ulan Bator is amazing! The opening ceremonies are really cool and the horse racing, which takes place outside the city, are a photographer's dream.

    Buddhist monastery in Kharkhorin

    by anzzz Written Jan 18, 2004

    Kharkhorin is the ancient capital of Mongolia, located a few hours by car from Ulan Bator. Kharkhorin is not a big city at all, but there is a buddhist monastery that is well worth a visit.
