Travel to Manshir Monastery
Trip to Manshir Khiid and Zuunmod twon
A day tour to Manzshir Monastery
Short Tours Description
We will meet in the morning at 10 AM at Chez Bernard Caf. From here leave for Zuunmod, capital city of Tov aimag (province). After one hour driving we will arrive in the centre of this small administrative town. We will walk around and visit the Central Province Museum. This museum gives a good summary of local geology, flora and fauna.
After our visit we will continue to Manzshir Monastery. The monastery is located 8 km from Zuunmod in Boghdkhan National Park. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful rolling hills covered with pine and cedar trees. The place is dotted with granite formation creating a mystical atmosphere. We can understand why monks settled here to live their religious life.
The monastery was established in 1733 and included more than 20 temples and 350 monks. Tragically, it was destroyed during the Stalinist purges of 1937.
We will spend the afternoon hiking around the ruins of the Monastery. We will see the two-tonnes bronze cauldron and pay a visit to the small monastery museum. The courageous will walk up the hill behind the main monastery and enjoy the great view on the valley.
At the end of the afternoon we will drive back to Ulaanbaatar.
