Challenge has finished
It's a larger-sized country, but doesn't show up on most traveler's radars. Due to the difficulty getting there? Due to some other reason? Regardless, for those who have been fortunate enough to have visited, show us what we're missing. The dramatic desolate landscapes. The cautious but friendly people. The cultural offerings. Anything you think says "Mongolia." Please give location info that is as specific as possible.
