Happy Tuesday Y'all!
On the second day of our tour through the steppes of Mongolia- we stayed in Terelj National Park. This is known as the birthplace of Chinggis Khan. And it was so beautiful.
I love how colorful the houses are in Mongolia. Fun Fact: The different colored roofs signify the different tribes that exist in the country. They paint them so if you are traveling you will always have a way to know where you can stay. Our guide, Jangar, comes from the red houses and our driver, Nanna, the blue.
People were always dressing us up and making us take pictures- but we secretly loved it.
Turtle Rock- legend this is the rock that lead to Chinggis using the turtle as a symbol for his government- which you can still see all throughout the country.
And that's a bit of Terlj National Park- amazing right! While we were here we stayed in a ger again- which was just as amazing. And we learned how to play the traditional ankle bone shooting game.
We loved our time in Mongolia and look forward to making another trip soon.
