Chingis Khan\'s trail tour for 6 days by jeep

Route: Ulaanbaatar-Undurkhaan-Khentii-Ulaanbaatar.

Eastern Mongolia is an area which bore witness to the Great Chingis Khan’s history – his birthplace and all the main events that were described in the Secret History of the Mongols. From this area, the Great Khaan started his career and laid the foundation of an empire that conquered half of the known world. Still known as the golden era of Mongolian history, during this time the Mongol Empire was the most powerful nation on Earth. Chingis Khan was a great military general, statesman and Mongolian national hero. At the time of Chingis Khan's birth the nomads of the eastern steppes lived in a feudal society. Each tribe was led by its khan, and were divided into clans which formed an ordu, the Mongol word for a camp (and source of the English word horde). Within the ordu each family lived in a ger , a tent made of felt stretched over a wooden frame, and even for the rich families, life was often frugal: at the end of winter when the preservation of the herds was of paramount importance they would travel for several days without eating in search of fresh pasture and game. For the many poor, life was always squalid. The men of the clan spent their time hunting, tending their herds and fighting: a man's survival may have depended on his ability as a horseman and an archer, but his success depended on his strength as a warrior and his cunning as a bandit. Since the easiest way to acquire more horses and cattle was to steal them and the simplest way to look after them was to have it done for you by slaves, the nomad clans were constantly raiding each other. But the objectives of these raids was sometimes even more than the capture of animals and able-bodied men: the nomad warriors were polygamous and tradition forbade them to marry within their own clan.
