Khentii Aimag (province) is the favorite hunting-ground for Chinggis Khaan fans. It is now generally accepted that he was born here, and in particular Dadal soum. The two largest rivers are Kherlen and the Onon and the capital is Ondor khaan, located 330 km from Ulaanbaatar, on the banks of the Kherlen. In Ondor khaan you can visit the ethnology museum that is located in an 18th century palace, with a rich collection of relics and artwork confiscated from the aristocracy after the 1921 revolution.
Dadal is a gorgeous area of lakes, rivers, forests and log huts. At Gurvan nuur (lake) stands a ten metre monument celebrating the 800th anniversary of Chinggis Khaan’s birth.
