The territory of Mongolia is three times the size of France. The population is 22 times smaller. Once we leave Ulan Bator, the capital which is the home of two thirds of the of 2.8 million Mongolians, we find the Gobi desert in the south, the largest of all Asia, or the Siberian woods and lakes in the north. Endless mountains and steppes guarded by a few fortunate nomads. Not a trace of Genghis Khan or his great empire. Just a few lonely yurts, or ger as they are called in Mongolia. An untamed land of untamed people. [PDF]
