Mongolia: From the Capital to the Gobi Desert
Ann O'Hagan
Join photographer, Ann O’Hagan, for a visual journey through the highlights of Mongolia, a developing Asian country sandwiched between Russia and China. Once under the yoke of China then Russia, the republic transitioned to independence and democracy during a bloodless revolution in 1990.
View ancient and modern architecture in the capital, Ulaanbaatar. Take in beautiful snowcapped mountain landscapes, Lake Khovsgol on the Siberian border, and the Flaming Cliffs of the Gobi Desert.
Learn about the herding life of nomadic people and explore their countryside accommodations called gers, known as yurts in Russia. Experience the cultural reverence for Genghis Kahn and his warrior horsemen who established the largest land empire the world has ever known.
Through the camera lens, you’ll glimpse everything from Buddhist temples and
shamanistic rituals to bands of horses and bactrian camels.
Don’t miss this opportunity for a photographic tour from the comfort of your living room.
