TRANS MONGOLIAN EXPRESS – MONGOLIA (PART 1)

Elephant tempel

In this video, we visited the Terelj National Park, Genghis Khan Monuments, Turtle rock, The Elephant temple and Tsagaan Suvarga better known as the White Stupa in Middle Gobi.

The Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue, part of the Genghis Khan Statue Complex is a 40-meter tall statue of Genghis Khan on horseback. Underneath the Statue is the Genghis Khan visitor center, itself 10 meters tall, with 36 columns representing the 36 khans from Genghis to Ligdan Khan.

Tsagaan Suvarga is big escarpment with 200m height and 400m long. In ancient time there was a big sea in a Khevtee and Bosoo valleys of Tsagaan Suvarga. After dried up the sea this area became an area with many glacis and escarpments, covered by many different sedimentary deposits. There is a cave with two doors called Khevtee and Bosoo which is home to many bats.
