Baldanereeven was one of the three largest monasteries in Mongolia and home to 1500 lamas. It was destroyed first by thugs in the 1930s and again by fire in the 1970s.

Rashaan Khad and Uglugch
Wall We will depart towards Rashaan Khad, a rock with numerous ancient inscriptions and drawings. The inscriptions depict animals, people, and Mongolian tribal seals and are written in 20 different scripts such as Orkhon, Kidan, Arabic, Persian, Mongolian, and Tibetan. An ancient tomb, dating back to 2000 BC, and monuments attributed to the Huns are also found here.
We will continue our trip by stopping by the Uglugch Wall. This ancient wall is over a kilometer long and made of red granite. Originally, the wall stretched much higher, but time has taken its toll. This area also used to be a burial ground for Mongolian royalty.
