As the land that gave the world Genghis Khan, Eastern Mongolia has much to offer to keep the infamous ruler’s spirit fresh and foremost in the minds of those who travel here. From a monument dedicated to him, to Khentii – his birthplace, which is now a quiet province and historic locale – this is his territory.
Best explored by horseback like the nomadic empires of history, everywhere in this region is grassy, from the flatland to the upland. Harsh weather conditions also make the area hostile to human habitation – even the nomads’ gers are few and far between. But if you make it here, there are a few spots worth galloping through, including a nature reserve and national park.
