Mongolia Centrale - The Great Mongolian Adventures

Mongolia Centrale


         La Mongolia central, come il Gobi, è altrettanto varia nei paesaggi, le colline dolci, da steppe erbose e lussureggianti vallate, a montagne boscose o spoglie. La Mongolia centrale è punteggiata dalle bianche Gers dei nomadi, con i loro numerosi animali che pascolano senza sosta in paesaggi in continuo cambiamento mentre ci spostiamo da un'attrazione all'altra, da un luogo scenico a un altro.
La Mongolia centrale offre i luoghi come il Parco Nazionale dei Monti Khangai, il Parco Nazionale Gorkhi Terelj, il Parco Nazionale Khugnu Khan, la montagna Zorgol Khairkhan, la montagna Ikh Gazriin Chuluu, la montagna Baga Gazriin Chuluu, i Monti Khentii, il Parco Nazionale Khorgo Terkhi e molto altro.
La catena montuosa Khangai è la parte più verde della Mongolia. Tante le bellezze naturali come laghi, fiumi, cascate, sorgenti calde, montagne di granito, scogliere e valli.
Il Parco Nazionale di Gorkhi Terelj è l'attrazione turistica più visitata per la sua posizione vicina alla città di Ulan Bator. Bellissime montagne boscose con rocce e fiumi dalle curve sinuose, una natura che ammalia il visitatore.
Khugnu Khan National Park è una montagna rocciosa con numerose cascate e piante medicinali e animali selvatici. Accanto alla montagna c'è il famoso Elsen Tasarkhai, le cosiddette dune di sabbia di Mongol Els, il posto più interessante da visitare sulla strada per la catena montuosa di Khangai.
Le montagne Ikh Gazriin Chuluu e Baga Gazriin Chuluu sono la due aree granitiche, situate nella provincia del Middle Gobi. Le improvvise scogliere di granito regalano uno scenario incredibile, sembra davvero di essere atterrati su un altro pianeta!

Khuvsgul Loop 10 Days

Khuvsgul Lake is located in the northwest of Mongolia near the border to Russia, at the foot of the eastern Sayan Mountains. It is 1,645 m above sea level, 136 km long and 262 m deep. It is the second-most voluminous freshwater lake in Asia and holds almost 70% of Mongolia's fresh water and 0.4% of all the freshwater in the world. Its watershed is relatively small, and it only has small tributaries. It gets drained at the south end by the Egiin Gol, which connects to the Selenge and ultimately into Lake Baikal. In between, the water travels a distance of more than 1,000 km, and a height difference of 1,169 m, although the line-of-sight distance is only about 200 km. Its location in northern Mongolia helps form the southern border of the great Siberian taiga forest, of which the dominant tree is the Siberian Larch. The lake is surrounded by several mountain ranges. The highest mountain is the Burenkhaan / Munkh Saridag (3,492 m), which has its peak north of the lake exactly on the Russian-Mongolian border. The surface of the lake freezes over completely in winter. It's inhabited by nine species of fish including the Siberian grayling, sturgeon and lenok and the area is rich with various species of flora and fauna. And the area is home to argali wild sheep, ibex, bear, sable, moose and wolves. The region hosts three separate, unique people: Darkhad, Buryat and Tsaatan. Shamanism, rather than Buddhism, is the religion of choice in these parts of Mongolia.

Danshig Buddhist Festival 7 Days

Originally, Danshig festival or Danshug Naadam is related to the enthronement ceremony for His Holiness Zanabazar (1635 - 1722), the spiritual head of Mongolian Buddhism. Drawing on the traditional yearly gatherings of the seven Mongol princes of the Khalkha province, the Danshig represents a symbolic demonstration of unity as well as a religious and political event for the Khalkha Mongols. This religious festival was revived in 2014, almost a century later. You will have a chance to experience this festival up close with richly informative buddhist guide.
