Mongolia Culture, Map, Flag, Tourist Places

Mongolia is a landlocked East Asian and Central Asian country, bordered by Russia to the north and the People's Republic of China to the south.

The Mongolian heartland consists of relatively flat steppes. The southern portion of the country is taken up by the Gobi Desert, while the northern and western portions are mountainous. The highest point in Mongolia is Nayramadlin Orgil (Huyten Orgil) at 4,374 m (14,350 feet). Uvs Nuur Lake, shared with Tuva Republic in the Russian Federation, is a natural World Heritage Site.

21 provinces (aimags in Mongolian), the capital city (Ulaanbaatar), including 3 autonomous cities (Darkhan, Erdenet and Choir). The provinces are subdivided into sums, or district of which there are 298. The biggest province is South Gobi Province (Umnugobi aimag) which occupies an area of 165,000sq.km but due to its rigorous climatic conditions has the smallest population.

Known as "the land of blue sky", Mongolia is a remarkable sunny country enjoying 250 sunny days a year. Mongolia has warm summers and extremely cold winters. The country has the world's most typical continental climate with extreme diurnal and annual ranges of temperature. Average temperature in most of the country is below the freezing point from November to March and close to it in April and October. Winter nights of -40C occur most years (minimum recorded -55C at lake Uvs). Summer extremes reach as high as +40C in the Gobi Desert and +33C in Ulaanbaatar. Monthly temperature variations of +45C to -55C are not uncommon in many regions of Mongolia. Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia has the coldest average temperature of any national capital in the world.
