"Grand Nomads" Mongolian Tours & Travel Services

Karakorum and Elsen Tasarkhai Sand Dunes

Tour description


This 2 day trip will take you to the ancient Mongolian capital of Karakorum, beautiful and functioning Erdenezuu Monastery decorated with 108 white stupas and other surrounding places. Other central Mongolian locations we will visit include beautiful sand dunes and Erdene Khamba Buddhist Monastery. Karakorum was the 13th Century capital of Great Mongolian Empire of Chinggis Khaan. Most westerners recognize it “Karakorum” but Mongolians call it “Kharkhorin”. Erdenezuu is the first Buddhist center in Mongolia. At its height, the monastery housed over 1500 monks in over 60 temples before the communist purges of the 1937. It has been restored and is still beautiful and again a functioning monastery. Elsen Tasarkhai is a part of the 80 km long Mongol Els Sand Dunes. The nature in this area is really spectacular and great for relaxing. During the trip, you will also have opportunities to visit a local nomadic family, ride two-humped Bactrian camel, walk on sand dunes, experience staying in a traditional Mongolian dwelling, the ger, and walk and relax in beautifully serene nature. You may choose this Mongolia short tour program as a whole or also you can choose one or two day tour programs. Because of its proximity and good road connection to Ulaanbaatar, Karakorum can easily be made a part of most tours and extended with other tours. Enjoy Mongolian short trips and day tours with us!
