Explore & Experience: Gandan Monestery in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia – the world’s coldest capital

In this live virtual tour with Mongolian tour guide Zol, we’ll walk around the Ulaanbaatar city center to see how Mongolians live in the coldest capital in the world.

We’ll visit the Gandan monastery complex, where monks still study and work today. You’ll learn how Tibetan Buddhism spread into Mongolia, survived during Communist time, and revived. We’ll see Chinese, Tibetan, and Mongolian style Buddhist temples, the library, the university, and Buddhist schools. You’ll also see the world’s tallest indoor statue of compassion deity. It’s a stunning 87 feet tall gold-leaf and gemstone-covered Avalokiteśvara consecrated by the Dalai Lama in 1996.

You’ll learn about the local people’s religious practices – feeding pigeons, turning wheels, and praying to the magic tree.

Join this live virtual tour with Zol, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session! Once you book, we will send you the link to join.

I am Zol, a professional tour guide living in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. It has been over a decade since I have been guiding and organizing Mongolia tours. Over the years, I have explored most of Mongolia’s national parks and tourist attractions but also visited some of Asian and European countries. I love meeting new people from all over the world and sharing unique culture, history and daily life of Mongolian people. Beside guiding tours, I am a passionate photographer and travel vlogger. I enjoy trekking, horse riding and running.
