Asia Tours: Mongolia

Mongolia is a landlocked country in East and Central Asia. It is bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, east and west. Although Mongolia does not share a border with Kazakhstan, its western-most point is only 38 kilometres (24 mi) from Kazakhstan's eastern tip. The capital Ulan Bator is Mongolia’s largest city, and is home to about 45% of the population. The  Mongol Empire was founded by  Genghis Khan in 1206. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Mongolia came under the influence of  Tibetan Buddhism.
At 1,564,116 square kilometres (603,909 sq mi), Mongolia is the 19th largest and the most sparsely populated independent country in the world, with a population of around only 2.75 million people. The country contains very little arable land, as much of its area is covered by steppes, with mountains to the north and west and the Gobi Desert to the south. Approximately 30% of the population are nomadic or semi-nomadic.
