Summer Wildflowers, Manzuchir Monastery Ruins by Bogd Khan Mountains, Töv Aimag, Mongolia

HI again! It's the season for wildflowers here in Mongolia. One of the best places to see them is at the Manzuchir Monastery or Mandshir Khiid ruins, just a few kilometers outside of  Zuunmod, the capital of Töv aimag. 

Set on a valley by the majestic Bogd Khan mountain, one of the holy mountains protecting Ulaanbaatar (UB), Mongolia's capital city, Mandshir Khiid is just an hour and a half leisurely drive from UB. 

The road is bumpy some ways, especially with the new airport road construction going on. But it's really worth a trip. It could be a day trip, picnic there, or you can stay in one of the ger camps. For transport, I usually call Sukhee (99652371, to organize my travel needs. 

These photos are just teasers. Prepare for a heart meltdown when you get there.

Bye for now, talk to you soon.
