The Tuvkhon monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in the world. This monastery is located in central Mongolia between Uvurkhangai and Arkhangai provinces on the top of Shiveet-Ulaan mountain. The Tuvkhon monastery first established in 1654 by 14 year old boy Zanabazar. Earlier when he first noticed this flat place in 1648 he built a small wooden cabin for meditation. Later in 1996, the monastery registered as a UNESCO world cultural heritage. As location of the monastery is on the top of the mountain there is no road drive up, so visitors need to hike up 5 kilometers to reach the monastery temples. Monastery includes 14 small separate temples and charms with its unique geo-location. There is geological formation “womb cave” nearby behind the temple which could another excellent hike for you.
