3 Day Karakorum and Elsen Tasarkhai tour

Our first destination is the Karakorum. This city once served as the capital of the Mongolian Empire and an essential station of the Silk Road. Karakorum city has much more to share than its current physical appearance. Mongolia’s largest and the historically most significant religious and cultural center – Erdenezuu Monastery – is operating as a museum there.

ElsenTasarkhai, a marvelous oasis with sand dunes, vegetation, lake, and birds, is located 80km from the Karakorum. Therefore, during this trip, you have the chance to experience the noteworthy, historical, religious, natural and adventurous side of Mongolia, all in one short period of time.

Leave Ulaanbaatar and explore one part of Central Mongolia on this 3-day trip –Learn about the symbolic ruins of the 13th century capital of the Mongol Empire, largest and the historically most significant religious and cultural center – Erdenezuu Monastery.
