Detailed description


Manzushir Monastery

We will pick you up from your hotel or guesthouse. From here leave for Zuunmod, capital city of Tov aimag (province). After one hour driving we will arrive in the centre of this small administrative town. We will walk around and visit the Central Province Museum. This museum gives a good summary of local geology, flora and fauna.

After our visit we will continue to Manzushir Monastery. The monastery is located 8 km from Zuunmod in Boghdkhan National Park. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful rolling hills covered with pine and cedar trees. The place is dotted with granite formation creating a mystical atmosphere. We can understand why monks settled here to live their religious life.

The monastery was established in 1733 and included more than 20 temples and 350 monks. Tragically, it was destroyed during the Stalinist purges of 1937.

We will spend the afternoon hiking around the ruins of the Monastery. We will see the two-tonne bronze cauldron and pay a visit to the small monastery museum. After discovering the monastery and its secrets, we will start our trek over the Bogd Khan Mountain. The courageous will walk up the hill behind the main monastery and enjoy the great view on the valley. The monastery overlooks a beautiful valley of streams, pine, birch and cedar trees dotted with granite boulders. We will trek mostly through dense forests.

At the end of the afternoon we will drive back to Ulaanbaatar.
