Welcome to Selenge


And yet, the Mongolia of ger camps and guardian deities is still here for now. Towards the north, thunderhead clouds gather on the forested mountains that crowd the Russian border, and near an impossibly beautiful valley, travellers will find the sublime Amarbayasgalant Khiid, a masterpiece of Mongolian Buddhist art and architecture.
