Located in the landlocked plateau between Russian Siberia and the plains of northern China, Mongolia presents a geographically and culturally dramatic impression. Within this enchanting country’s borders, you will enjoy boundless wonders of nature. Mongolia’s pristine mountains, unspoiled Gobi Desert, and sweeping grasslands are home to a vast natural heritage – snow leopards, wild horses and camels, The Gobi bears, wild sheep and goats, antelope and more.
In addition to its remarkable landscape, Mongolia has also maintained a robust cultural legacy. The first existence of human beings in the territory of present-day Mongolia dates back to the Stone Age. At the beginning of the 13th century, Chinggis Khaan (also known as Genghis Khan in the West) founded the Mongolian Empire, which by the end of the century extended from China to the Caspian Sea. After the collapse of the empire, Mongolia was subjugated by the Manchu Dynasty for several centuries, and in 1911, the Mongol Monarch was established. Over the subsequent years, Mongolia has developed a vibrant multi-party democracy as well as a rapidly growing economy.
