The Zaisan Memorial is perched on a hillside overlooking Ulaanbaatar, capital of Mongolia. The monument is reached by walking up 200-ish steps, so not for those with mobility issues, but worth it when you get to the top. The design of the monument is interesting...More

I walked from my hostel (around Peace Tower) out to the memorial. I left at around 8am; it's a three hour return trip if you spend half an hour at the monument. Best views from the south of the city. The better photo opportunities are...More
