Leaving Mongolia

Stop thinking and go there.

After a very beautiful but long drive, due to a “short cut” via a marshland we arrived in our last ger camp. On the way here we made a quick shopping stop at Erdenet city. In this city the Russians run a Copper mine and collect 60% of the profits and the Mongolian government only 40%.
After we settled down in our ger tents we went to visit Amarbayasgalan monastery. This is a very beautiful and big Buddhist monastery and absolutely worth a visit if you’re ever over here in Mongolia.
I’m sad to say that tomorrow we drive back to Ulaanbataar via Darkhan city and we’re going to visit our last monastery in Ulaanbataar, Uran Togoo. This monastery houses an enormous statue of Buddha.
I’ll be sad to leave this country because it’s so beautiful, quiet and houses large pieces of unspoiled nature.
Although there are very few asphalt roads in Mongolia it’s absolutely worth the bumpy rides through this country. So if you’re thinking about a visit, stop thinking and just go, you’ll love it.
