Mongolia - Eastern Mongolia (Chapter)
This is the Eastern Mongolia chapter from Lonely Planet's Mongolia guidebook.
In eastern Mongolia you'll encounter a boundless blue sky colliding with an equally limitless sea of green. The occasional shack or ger (traditional yurt) reminds you that humans do inhabit this landscape, but for the most part it's an unspoilt amphitheatre of bounding gazelle, scurrying marmots and jeep tracks that squiggle endlessly into the distance.
