Carpet Factory information
Lonely Planet review
The city’s carpet factory is open year-round but production is low in summer (June to August) when supplies of wool are scarce. Prices at the shop and the attached new outlet are similar to those at the Naran Tuul Market in Ulaanbaatar, but the selection here is much better and a carpet makes a fine souvenir. Floor carpets measuring 2m by 3m start from around T180,000 and the factory has now branched out into cashmere products. It's just off the main road to the train station, about 2km from the Friendship Monument.
