Stop At: Manzshir Monastery, Ulaanbaatar

One of Mongolia’s most atmospheric religious sites, 18th-century Manzshir Monastery lies almost entirely in ruins on the slopes of the Bogd Khan Mountain, 5,906 feet (1,800 meters) above sea level. Rather than waste time piecing together buses and taxis, join this convenient door-to-door day tour that includes the monastery, a hike in Bogd Khan Uul National Park

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Bogd Khan Uul National Park, Ulaanbaatar

Rise early in the morning and head to Manzushir Monastery, established in 1733 and situated in the south of Bogd Khan Uul Mountain range, which is 2.5mi/4km north of Tuv Aimag capital of Zuunmod. Over time, the monastery has grown into a complex of more than 20 temples with over 300 resident monks. During the communist purges of the 1920's and 1930's, the monastery was completely destroyed and all of the monks were exiled. The remains of the temple have been turned into a museum. Locals love to hike, picnic, and hang out here. Enjoy a walk in the Bogd Khan Uul National Park or a short horseback riding tour. You will love the surrounding nature and beautiful landscapes. In the evening, you will be transferred back to your Ulaanbaatar hotel.
