Itinerary (Ulaanbaatar - Hogno Khan Mountain - Erdenezuu & Kharakhorum - Ulaanbaatar)

Karakorum - or Harhorin - was the ancient capital in the time of the Mongol empire during the 13-14th centuries. It was totally sacked by the Chinese Ming dynasty warriors during the overthrow of Kublai Khan, the Mongol emperor of China. Little remain, but the site is situated in a very scenic area. During the 16th century the giant Erdenezuu monastery was built from the remains of Karakorum. Erdenezuu was closed for many years, but after the democratic reforms in 1991, monks are again living there.

We will journey by bus or jeep 400 km to the west of Ulan Bator into the Ovorhangai province and visit Karakorum and Erdenezuu. We will overnight in a permanent ger camp at 80 km short from Karakorum at the Hogno Khan Mountain. It is a unique rock formation, situated on the arid steppes. Nearby is a small freshwater lake with ducks and herons, and in the mountain itself, the Erdene Khombo monastery is being restored.


Private tour: Departure everyday from Ulaanbataar . Daily May 21st - Sep19th
   

Day  1
Ulaanbaatar - Hogno Khan Mountain (-/-/-)
Depart in the morning by bus for the Hogno Khan Mountains Ger Camp. We will travel on one of Mongolia's few asphalt roads. There will be steppe landscape all the way, and upon reaching the Hogno Khan Mountain area we will see sand dunes in the middle of the steppes. They are locally known as "Little Gobi" and next to them there is a small lake where waders such as herons and ducks may be seen. Overnight in gers.

Day  2
Hogno Khan Mountain (Breakfast/Lunch/Diner)
The Hogno Khan Mountain is a giant rock formation in the middle of the steppes, and in it is the small Erdene Khombo monastery, now being restored. The abbot is a woman, Davaa, who as a child witnessed her father, then abbot, be executed during the purges of the 1930s. It is surrounded by an interesting countryside area where many nomadic herdsmen live. We will explore the area today

Day  3
Erdenezuu - Karakorum (Breakfast/Lunch/Diner)
Full day excursion of this fascinating area. We will drive 70km on a bad road to Harhorin. Erdenezuu is nowadays a functioning monastery in constant renovation to its former splendor.

Once, 1000 monks used to inhabit Erdenezuu. It had some 100 temples within its 400 by 400 meters long walls. The monastery was sacked during the purges of 1937. Only the walls and 3 temples remain. Erdenezuu is still one of the most fascinating sites of Mongolia, and usually we will be able to experience and see the prayers. Return to camp and overnight in gers.
