Tour description

Karakorum is a destination not to be missed by visitors who are coming to Mongolia. This is a heart of Mongolia. Karakorum was the 13th Century capital of Great Mongolian Empire of Chinggis Khaan. Most westerners recognize it as “Karakorum” but Mongolians call it “Kharkhorin”. The original city of Karakorum was destroyed in the 14th Century by ancient Chinese Ming Dynasty soldiers. Close to the modern Karakorum is the Erdenezuu Monastery a UNESCO World Heritage site. The monastery was built in 1586 using stones from the ruins of ancient Karakorum. Erdenezuu was 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. Now there is a beautiful and functional Erdenezuu Monastery which is decorated by 108 white stupas. There are also other interesting sightseeing places around Karakorum. Because of its proximity and good road connection to Ulaanbaatar, Karakorum can easily be a part of most tours and extended with other tours. Ulaanbaatar city tours, beautiful Elsen Tasarkhai Sand Dunes, Khustai National Parks and other interesting activities are essential parts of the tour.
