Continued... Following in the steps of the Khans we explore the ancient 13th century capitol of Kharakhorum; imagining a time when the borders of Mongolia extended from Korea to Central Europe. Along the way we discover the Mongol's Buddhist beliefs exploring temples and monasteries. Our visit to the steppe concludes spotting wild horses before we head south in to the Gobi where we hike in hidden valleys, ride camels on immense dunes and visit historic paleontological sites. From our base at the Three Camels Ger Camp we further learn about Mongolia and its people, history and natural history.
