The small village of Tunhel in Mongolia. Originally a cow herding village, it's localisation, a few hours north of Ulaan-Baator with the Transmogolian railways, allows it to become a fashionable resort for people on retirement from public office. Not very far from the Russian border, it is a district with some scarce forests and bears that are still hunted. Fall season is the best to visit as the weather is more suited for our western tastes.
