Mongolia, located in East Asia, is known for its vast landscapes of rolling grasslands, deserts, and rugged mountains. The nomadic lifestyle of the Mongolian people has been a central part of their culture for centuries, with many still living in traditional felt tents called gers. The country's rich history includes the mighty Mongol Empire, led by Genghis Khan, who conquered much of Asia and Europe in the 13th century. Traditional Mongolian music, throat singing, and wrestling are important cultural traditions that showcase the unique heritage of this fascinating country.
