Good place a day trip outside of Ulaanbaatar. Entrance ticket to the museum up there is actually interesting. Ticket was like 2000 or $1.

Not far from the capital as the crow flies, but you'd never believe it. Nor would you believe it on the road there, which goes the long way around. And a rough road it is in places. About an hour and a half from Ulaanbaatar.

Manzshir monastery is destroyed but there is some remains. But, its surrounding nature is wonderful just 55 kms south of Ulaanbaatar. If you love for hiking it is nice to see the summit of Bogd mountain for the view of Ulaanbaatar. It will take total 5 hours. By the way, there is a nice road from Manzshir to Tsonjin boldog,...

Locals love to go to this place for hiking, picnic, hang out. Beautiful landscape. Great place to go hiking for a day. Not much to see in the monastery itself. It is not a practicing monastery. Just old locked ruins.

Arrange with your guides to arrive on horseback (30min if you're comfortable each way) as the Mongolian horse is really quite unique. This beautiful site of ruins destroyed during communist era has still many preserved carvings and paintings, plus an exquisite view of the valley from the top

The few remains and one small reconstructed temple of this once large mountain retreat of buddhist monks sit in on the hillside of this beautiful little park. Its just about an hours drive from UB - but you need to get out of the awful UB traffic first. Its usuallly a very quiet place and the short climb up to... More

Visited the Manzshir Monastery which was along the way during a horse trek. Camped in the woods and visited the monastery in the morning. It's a very quiet and peaceful place, there's not very much left except ruins and a small temple, with a few Buddhist statues and art. If you climb up to the rock carvings, you get a... More

We drove to Manzshir Monastery on my last day in Ulaanbaatar and Mongolia. The drive took a long a long time, given the terrible traffic in Ulaanbaatar and the questionable road. The treed surroundings were beautiful. The monastery definitely NOT as great as Gandan. The museum on the site was small and housed stuffed animals of the area. The history... More

I like this monastery's setting better than Gandan's in the center of UB. There are the annoying ger camps just near the parking lot but you can escape the crowds in the surrounding park. When the leaves and the larch needles change in the fall it is just as spectacular as the summer blooms.
