Three years and 12,000 km through the Steppes of Genghis Khan

Seemingly coming out of nowhere, the Mongols swept through much of Asia and parts of Europe under the brutal but brilliant leadership of Genghis Khan. Only a couple of hundred years later, they retreated back into the Steppes to be virtually forgotten for the next five hundred years.

After 300 years of Manchurian rule, followed by 75 years of Communism, Mongolia is finally coming out of its isolation and opening its doors to the outside world. This long-forgotten part of Asia reveals a fascinating land of endless rolling steppes, gers, and nomadic herders.

Take a virtual tour through Mongolia - a trip into the Steppes of Genghis Khan.
