Ruins of Karakorum History Tour — Kated

Karakorum was the capital of the Mongol Empire and relics from Genghis Khan’s time still remain. Hear tales of the emperor’s conquests and enjoy lunch with a view towards the mountains.

Stone ruins dot the landscape, reminders of when Karakorum was the capital city of the largest empire to ever grace the world. An expert local guide joins you today and provides a detailed history lesson into Khan’s marauding.

Explore the Erdene Zuu monastery and admire its almost 100 temples, each of them looking resplendent beneath a rich blue sky. The vast complex is still home to practicing Lamas. Say hello to the spiritual monks in ascetic shrines and wander across picturesque courtyards that reveal a 14th century glory.
