Legend of Mongolia
We are proud of our natural & cultural heritage and look forward to sharing them with you as you visits this ancient land of nomads. Like our ancestors, we express our culture through our artwork and stories - a tradition that for centuries has been passed down from one generation to the next.The steppes and the immense scale of boundless landscapes, varying from flat plains to rolling plateaus and extensive grasslands, make up the heart of Mongolia. Here is the meeting place of Siberia's taiga forest, the Central Asian steppe, the high Altai mountains and the Gobi desert. Apart from the steppes, such outstanding landscapes as the Gobi desert, lake Hovsgol, Hustain Nuruu Natural Reserve, and Karakorum, the site of the ancient capital city of Mongolia and of Erdene zuu monastery, are all focal points of visiting Mongolia. On the edge of the 21st century, Mongolia remains one of the few countries that substantially retains its ancient culture and traditions memories about Mongolia for all who have visited here. As our guest, let us share with your a culture and traditions that have endured for thousands of years.
