About Mongolia

Mongolia is located in northern Asia, and is the world’s 18th largest landmass for countries. It’s situated between China in the south and Russia in the north. For population density, Mongolia is the least dense country with just 5 people per square mile.

Mongolia can be characterized as largely desert or semi-desert plains. Specifically, the Gobi Desert occupies most of the southeast part of the country. Finally, the Mongolian Plateau is in the central-east portion of the country.

In the west, the terrain in Mongolia is composed of the Altay Mountains. This is where Mongolia’s highest point, the Khuiten Peak, towers as high as 4,374 meters in height.
