Holiday in Mongolia

Mongolia

Mongolia is a landlocked country in East and Central Asia. It borders Russia to the north, China to the south, east and west. Ulan Bator is the capital and largest city and is home to about 45% of the population.

Mongolia has been ruled by various nomadic empires, including the Xiongnu, the Xianbei, the Rouran, the Gökturks and others. In 1206 Genghis Khan founded the Mongol Empire, and his grandson Kublai Khan conquered China to establish the Yuan Dynasty.

Mongolia is the 19th largest and the most sparsely populated independent country in the world, with a population of around 2.75 million people. It is also the world’s second-largest landlocked country after Kazakhstan.

Much of Mongolia consists of steppes. The highest point in Mongolia is theKhüiten Peak in the Tavanbogd massif in the far west at 4,374 m (14,350 ft). The basin of the Uvs Lake, shared with Tuva Republic in Russia, is a natural World Heritage Site.

The most common rural dish is cooked mutton, often without any other ingredients. In the city if you see a sign saying “buuz” these are dumplings filled with meat, which are cooked in steam. Other dishes combine the meat with rice or fresh noodles into various stews (tsuivan, budaataihuurga) or noodle soups (guriltaishol).

Partly because of Mongolia is landlocked it has an extreme continental climate, with an average of 260 sunny days a year but with wide variations in temperature between summer and winter.
