My son and I were in Hohhot to visit the Xanadu site, but due to bad weather the flight was late and we missed our train. Our next option was a day trip to Ordos to visit the Mausoleum, so we set out on the first bus to Dongsheng at 6:30am from Hohhot Long Distance Bus Station. The fare was... More

This is a beautiful man-made battlefield of Genghis Khan as a tribute to the great 'Mongol Hero'. Those warriors on horseback and camp-follower figures are made from cast-iron. Genghis Khan's gold yurk is his 'Supreme Command' tent carried out his routine work with his officials. Next is the Mongolian village followed by the historical museum. There are large murals on...

So - you're driving along the highway in Mongolia, round a corner (not too many of those around) and this stoking great statue looms at you! It's slightly bonkers but a great place - being able to climb up into the horse's head is great fun and the mini-museums at the bottom are worth a quick visit too.

Definitely, a great place to visit. We had great weather. I would recommend to plan the visit taking the forecast in mind. With the blue skies I was able to take some great pictures. We had purchased a package that included the museum, a short train ride and entry to the mausoleum. There was plenty to see and learn about... More

Visited quickly as this was a long distance away from Hotel and we had more plans for the same day. Very interesting History and the internal museum was very well laid out to order.

No one really knows where the body of Genghis Khan is buried, but this spot has an attractive museum about the famed leader and the Mongolian culture of that time. It is not easy access from downtown Baotou, but if you have a car or go on a tour, then it is easy. Displays have information in Mandarin, Mongolian, and... More

The mausoleum complex is nice and clean. The exhibits had quite a bit of information in English, which was appreciated. It is important to note, however, that Genghis Khan's remains are not located here - their location is unknown. And many of the items and other things displayed here seem to be incorrectly attributed - claims that items belonged to... More

This is a nice mausoleum if you want to pay respects to the great leader ghengis Khan. It's a beautiful building and you learn lots about his history.
