An Introduction to Mongolia

The Mongols conquered a huge Eurasian empire under Genghis Khan in the 13th century. After his death the empire was divided and then broke apart, the Mongols retiring to their original steppe homelands. Under Chinese rule from the late 17th century, Mongolia won its independence in 1921 with Soviet backing and a Communist regime was installed in 1924. A democratic revolution in early 1990 has led to a multi-party system and a market economy. See full country profile.

Any which way.... The annual Mongol Rally starts in London and ends in Ulaanbaatar. The object of the race is for ill equiped teams in under powered vehicles to travel the approximately 10,000 miles any way they can. Cars are not permitted to be over 1000cc and motorcycles 125cc. Just about any route is acceptable, with some teams going as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far south as Afghansitan.

The organisers opine 'You only start having fun when you break down in the desert with only a short stick and some chewing gum to fix your car'.

Mongolia in Profile

The Mongols conquered a huge Eurasian empire under Genghis Khan in the 13th century. After his death the empire was divided and then broke apart, the Mongols retiring to their original steppe homelands. Under Chinese rule from the late 17th century, Mongolia won its independence in 1921 with Soviet backing and a Communist regime was installed in 1924. A democratic revolution in early 1990 has led to a multi-party system and a market economy.

The geography of Mongolia is extremely varied with the Gobi Desert to the south and mountainous regions to the north and west. Most of the country is hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter. The temperature can fall as low as -30C (-22F) and Ulaanbaatar has the lowest average temperature of any national capital in the world.
