To the south of Ulaanbaatar is a hill with a great view over the Tuul river, the surrounding green hills and the sprawling city with more and more highrise buildings. Several steps lead straight up in a direct line to the top of this hill,...More

I went there the hard way, by walking up the 600+ steps. You can take a shortcut through the adjacent business and shopping centre. From this vantage point, you can see the comparison between modern UB and the majority of the city, the poor ger...More

Well worth a visit. It's a lot of stairs, so try to drive up if you are unfit, the last bit is stairs only so no wheelchair access. Good old soviet era architecture, it's good to have a look to see how Russia was promoting...More

This imposing monument overlooking the city remembers the Russian soldiers who freed Mongolia from occupation in 1921. It is an impressive structure and well worth the walk up the many stairs to get there

The murals are impressive and beautifully done, but it was not one of my favorite places to visit. I would not feel like I was missing out if we had not gone there. It does have expansive views of UB, but we had better views...More

From the top you get great views of UB and the mountains. Well worth the walk up the stairs. The murals show important events in Mongolian / Soviet history. At the top they sell souvenirs. You can also get your photo taken with an eagle.

The views alone make it worth the steps, and there are plenty if them. An insight into the Russian years at the monument with fantastic views of the city and riverside. Do this then the Buddha statue which is close by. If there is even...More
