Central Mongolia, commonly referred to as the Khangai Region, is an apt description for this part of the country. Khangai is loosely translated into ‘fertile’, and indeed, it is characterized by lush green meadows, crystal clear streams, wide lakes and gushing rivers.
Locked between Mongolia’s second largest mountain range, the Khangai Mountains to the south, and by the Tarvagatain mountains to the north, the Khangai is inhabited by many nomadic families who find here good graze for their herds amid rolling hills.
For the traveler, Central Mongolia tours offer a plethora of sites to be visited: thermal hot springs, extinct volcanoes, the ancient capital of the 13th century Mongol Empire and other historic sites throughout the Orkhon Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site, to name only few.
