Welcome to Kharkhorin
While this is the site of Mongolia’s famed 13th-century capital Karakorum, don't come expecting the glories of the Middle Ages – Kharkhorin (Хархорин) itself is a gritty, Soviet-built town. What does pull in punters by the busload, however, are the remains of the 16th-century monastery, Erdene Zuu Khiid, and the impressive museum, both of which offer some evocative insights into the region's golden era. The scenic valley surrounds, along with the strong selection of horse-trekking outfits and numerous accommodation options, ensure plenty of people linger for a while.
