Owner description: Chinggis Khaan Statute complex is situated 54 km from Ulaanbaatar City, with the view of beautiful natural scenery on the bank of the Tuul River, a historical place where Chinggis khan’s golden whip was found. Today, for a memory of the man of the millennium, a 40 meters high stainless steel statue of Chinggis Khaan on a horseback is the largest among the statues in the world. Inside the statue we operate a restaurant, souvenir shop, two museums and conference hall. Visitors can go up the statue using the elevator or the stairs to the head of the horse where they can have a panoramic view of the beautiful landscape.

It's a new monument, located 40 minutes away from Ulan Bator. Must see if you plan on visiting Mongolia!

The Chinggis Khan statue is MASSIVE and it is so far out of Ulaanbaatar. I don't really know the story behind it or why it was there, but it's really awesome.

The museum was closed when I went as well the stairwell lighting system wasn't working. Thankfully there are apps for that. It was really crowded up top with, you guessed it, tourists! But I managed to work my way to the edge, take a look around and get some photos of Chinggis up close and personal!

The statue is located just under a two hour car drive from Ulaanbaatar .Be prepared for a bumpy ride in many spots .Depending upon the time of the year, the pot holes may force you to drive
off the road for extended periods of time (as with any travel in Mongolia). There are very few places to visit the toilet along the route so be prepared .Petro stations do not have public washrooms. Take water with you and snacks as the driving alone is just under 4 hours (depending upon traffic,accidents..livestock blockades and road conditions.
The statue is huge and well presented .The climb up to the top is a little difficult as the stairwell is very narrow and when I was there not all the lights were working so I followed a group of people with lighters .The elevator does not always work .I was there in the fall when the weather was cold so there was breathing ability in the stairwell.
The view from the outside is awesome .The large boot downstairs is photogenic .You can pay a fee and dress up in Mongolian costume to have your pic taken .
The washrooms could use a good cleaning .
There is not much to see inside but the outside is awesome .It took a lot of work to build this thing .Worth the trip ..things to see along the way ...eagles,horses piles ,herds of horses and goats ..some yaks .Have the driver stop to get pics with the families that live along the road .
