I have to admit; I normally do not like these types of sites: huge monuments dedicated to one man. However, I was pretty impressed with this giant Chinngis statue. You can climb inside and go to the lookout at the top. There is a museum in the bottom and a restaurant and gift shop. Eventually, the plan was to create a ger camp and more. It's located to the east of UB out towards Terelj National Park.

The size and magnitude of this statue will blow you away. You will understand why Mongolians revere and respect this ruler and how much of the country's history steps from his leadership in his era. It's like visiting the Statue of Liberty in NYC - Gengkhis Khan in his horse towers over you and it makes for spectacular photos. Climb up to the top of the horse head and enjoy the scenery and don't forget to visit museum in the basement floor. There is no entry fee, but you will probably have to hire a guide to take you there from UB.

Huge Chinggis monument built with metal is a fun attraction in the outskirts of UB. One could climb to Chiggis' horse's head and see the wonderful views of the vastness that is the countryside of Mongolia. At time of visit, a replica of a nomadic village is being developed near the statue to depict the lives of the nomads for visitors to enjoy.

Very impressive construction , in literally the middle of no-where. Just going there is a trip by itself, it takes a good hour from UB - and let's you see the states of roads in the country.
You can climb to the head of the horse and the view from there is just magnificent, there's a little room inside with a movie explaining how the statue was build. Unfortunately it's not in English and doesn't provide English subtitles.

The Museum of Great Mongol Empire was built on the land of vastness - at the perfect location: in the middle of no where (if you drive to the Terelj National Park from Ulaanbaatar, you will pass this place). You can see it from afar: it was simply magnificent and outstanding. You can climb the stairs to the 'head of the horse" and admire the scenery from the top. The view from the top was equally beautiful. By looking at this statue and being up there, you can't help admiring both the Big Chinggis as well as the great country of Mongolia.
