Discover ancient heritage

Otgon Tenger Uul means ‘Son of the Sky’ and is one of three sacred mountains in Mongolia; Khan Khentii Uul and Bogd Khan Uul are the other two. Worshipping at these mountains began during Khunnu times by the first governing state of Mongolia, and this tradition continues to the present day. Genghis Khan first identified these three mountains as sacred mountains in the thirteenth century, and they were worshipped by his empire. History states that Genghis Khan’s funeral procession traveled from the Tangad state to Otgon Tenger.

Embark on an eight-day pilgrimage to Erdenezuu monastery and the ruins of Kharkhorin, eventually arriving at Otgon Tenger Uul. Learn about the Mongol connection to nature, their adoption of Buddhism in the 16th century and the role the mighty Khans played in establishing a lasting spiritual heritage.

SPECIAL NOTE: It is said that once every four years a universal gateway opens on Otgon Tenger Uul, offering great blessings and a strong connection to a great universal energy source. The exact date of this event will be announced in June/July 2020. Please ask us for more information in your booking enquiry!
