The mausoleum is not in a convenient location travel-wise and it certainly isn't informative or that interesting. If you really happen to be in the area, you might enjoy seeing the buildings and taking some pictures. I would rather spend my time in the desert when visiting Inner Mongolia.

Interesting memorial site dedicated to Genghiz Khan. If you love trivia or are a history buff, you will love this place. Lots of statues and exhibits, but nothing interactive. Colourful with great photo opportunities.

Its only a memorial site. The exact burial site is unknown. Interesting history and museum exhibits. We have a guide so is informative with murals depicting the life of Genghis Khan.
