07 Apr Countryside Tour
For our rest day, we decided to visit the province where the 40-foot all-steel statue of Genghis Khan is located. But on our way there, we had to stop to ask for directions. We took this opportunity to take some awesome road shots with the vast plains and mountains on the background. Not long after, we spotted some herdsmen with fowls and camels and asked if we could take a photo with the animals. It was my first time to carry a vulture and ride a camel so that was a really memorable experience for me. Shortly after, we went to Genghis Khan Statue Complex, a museum that is graced by the biggest equestrian statue in the world. Just to give you a perspective: the rider’s face alone is much much bigger than the tallest member of our team. After visiting the museum, we headed to a nearby Ger Camp to learn about the lifestyle of a traditional nomadic Mongolian.
This is our best attempt on cosplay at Mongolia:
