Mongolia - Northern Mongolia (Chapter)
This is the Northern Mongolia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Mongolia guidebook.
Log cabins, pine forests and monstrous fish do not conform to the classic image of Mongolia’s empty steppes. But strung along its northern border is a region so lush and rugged that one might confuse it with bits of Switzerland.
