No thread yet for this vast yet sparse country, so let's open one! 🇲🇳
I am just coming extremely late (as usual) to express also here my appreciation to @Michael Ayers
for his recent reviews of Orkhon Valley and Burkhan Khaldun, which I enjoyed very much. I wish you the best for the continuation of your trips!
Maybe I might think of adding one about Orkhon. Since I am at that, a question about boundaries: I cannot decide from the very coarse map on UNESCO's site
if the "Khul-Tegin museum", officially Хөшөө Цайдам мүзэй (khöshöö Tsaidam müzei, which I guess means "stelae's valley/salty marsh museum") north of Kharkhorin, of which I find few sites (touristic info
) is still in the core zone (from a mere cultural point of view, I think there would be no doubts). It is here on the map
: too up north? But it's still in the district of Khashaat.
And with this, I imagine this thread in the future frequented proportionately to how many travellers traverse those remote steppes and valleys :-)
