Mongolia + the Gobi

Ulaanbaatar, the capital of the Republic of Mongolia, is situated at the foot of the Bogdo Khan Uul, which rises 3,000 feet above the city. Ulaanbaatar is the political, cultural, economic and transportation center of the country. It has an international airport, the only university in the country and a library with ancient Mongolian, Chinese and Tibetan manuscripts. Founded in 1649 as a monastery town, Ulaanbaatar still preserves the monastery section and residence of the Living Buddha, once Mongolia’s spiritual leader.
The Gobi Desert is a vast zone of desert and desert steppe covering almost 30 percent of the Mongolian territory. The area is often imagined as a lifeless desert like in many other parts of the world. In reality, most part of the Gobi Desert is a land of steppes and it is the home for camel breeders rich with wildlife and vegetation. Wild asses, camels, snow leopards, mountain sheep and gazelles flourish here, as do different types of flora. Dinosaur skeletons and their petrified eggs have been preserved here to the present day. Mongolians consider that there are 33 different Gobi, where sandy desert occupies only 3 percent of the total territory. Climate is extreme in this region. The Great Gobi Reservation established in 1975 was designated by the United Nations as the fourth largest Biosphere Reserve in the world in 1991.
