World > Asia > Mongolia

As I moved by train across land from Europe to Asia, I was lucky enough to visit Mongolia en route to China. A fly through visit of 4 days saw me visiting Terelj National Park, Nalaikh and much of the city of Ulan Bataars "must see" spots. I found the people generally warm and friendly but could not stand the pollution of the main city, as a recent influx of people move in from the countryside, the cities infastructure can barely keep up with the ever growing amount of new arrivals. I was relieved to leave the city and to see some of what Mongolia is really famous for, its open landscapes and unspeakeable natural beauty.
