4: Mongolia is a country with a great history. The first empire on what is currently Mongolian territory was established two thousand years ago. Since then the Mongolian steppe has witnessed the rise and fall of several empires of nomadic warriors. At their peak, Mongolian warriors built the greatest empire in human history under the Great Chinggis Khan and his successors. The territory of the Great Mongolian Empire stretched from the Pacific Ocean to Hungary and from Russia to the Korean Peninsula. When you travel to Mongolia, you will have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of some of the great leaders in history.
