God's Geography: Mongolia
  • is the world's largest land-locked nation;
  • it has no navigable rivers that reach the sea;
  • it is very sparsely inhabited, even moreso than Canada;
  • and it is mostly above 3000 feet, comprised of mostly grasslands and desert plus a couple of moutain ranges.
Now let's rotate the map 180 degrees, and discover what Mongolia symbolizes: Mongolia is a Snapping Turtle! Hoever, Mongolia is upside down on its back. To understand why Mongolia is shaped like a turtle, we'll have to do a study on turtles, tortoises, and terrapins. The only place they occur in the Bible is in the health laws of Leviticus 11:
    29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
Like other reptiles (such as snakes), turtles are negative symbols. Our first hint as to what they symbolize is in the Greek word for turtle, chelonis . It can also mean 'a step, a heap, or a footstool'. In the Septuagint (Greek Old Testament) it occurs in 2 places; firstly in Hosea 12:
    11 Is there iniquity in Gilead? surely they are vanity: they sacrifice bullocks in Gilgal; yea, their altars are as

Mongolia is unique in its unusual and varied lifezones, especially compared to the other temperate zones of the Northern Hemisphere. Being in the very center of the Eurasian continent it is hard to get anywhere further from the oceans of the world.
The mean elevation of Mongolia is about 1500 meters above sealevel (5000 ft) which enhances the sharp continental climate. For most of the year it is very cold, especially at night. Precipitation is low and skies are usually clear during the wintertime. Summers, however, are very pleasant just as in the US and Europe. There is a short rainy season in July and August during which most of the yearly rain falls. This rain, however, is not more than what we get in northern Europe. Occasional strong winds can come and go quickly. Spring and fall pass very quickly.
Mongolia is a vast place of unexpected and unlikely encounters. The northernmost desert zones in the world are found within Mongolia, and so are the southernmost taiga forests of Siberia. Hence, the habitats of camels and reindeer almost merge in the northern areas by Hövsgöl Lake. It is located in a transition zone between the Siberian taiga forests and the Central Asian steppes and deserts. Most of Mongolia is still in a pristine condition. You can usually photograph yaks and camels side by side. In Mongolia is also the high snowcapped Altai Mountains and the Gobi desert.

Brief informations
Geography of Mongolia Mongolia is a huge, landlocked country about three times the size of France, squashed between China and Russia. It was immeasurably bigger during the period of Mongol conquest under Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan. Until the 20th century Mongolia was twice its present size and included a large chunk of Siberia and Inner Mongolia (now controlled by China). The southern third of Mongolia is dominated by the Gobi Desert. Although barren looking, it has enough grass to support scattered herds of sheep, goats and camels. Much of the rest of Mongolia is grassland, home to Mongolia's famed takhi horses, which Genghis Khan used so successfully in his wars of conquest.

Within the borders of the vast nation of Mongolia, there are incredible ecological treasures. Mongolia is home to one of the world's purest lake environments, a huge area of unique taiga forest and several endangered species, including the snow leopard. The Academy of Natural Sciences has established The Institute for Mongolian Biodiversity and Ecological Studies to study Mongolia's environment and assist its peoples in both conserving these resources and encouraging economic development through ecological tourism. For an interesting review and perspective on the Academy's program in Mongolia and its significance for biodiversity and environmental protection, please see the article written by Malcolm Scully (Special Editor) and published in the March 24, 2000 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education Contact: The Institute for Mongolian Biodiversity and Ecological Studies, Academy of Natural Sciences, 1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA 19103, USA

ABOUT MONGOLIA Click here for: history politics geography religion ... Home History The history of the Mongolians, as they have been known for over 1,200 years, is well recorded. The outside world knows little of Mongolia's history now apart from the dinosaurs of the Gobi and Ghengis Khan, but archaeologists believe the first humans lived in the area 500,000 years ago and that nomadic life is relatively modern. The Mongolians are believed to have grown cereal crops for many centuries before taming the camels and yaks. All the tribes of Mongolia lived separately, often at war with each other. This changed with the rise of the most famous Mongolian, Ghengis Khan. Born in 1162 and named Temujin, his story was recorded in the contemporary Secret History. By the age of 26 he had united many of the warring tribes and in 1189 he was given the title of Ghengis Khan, or "Universal Ruler". He built a city, Karakorum, to be the capital of his empire, a few parts of which can still be seen today. After his death the city was developed further - the great monastery of Erdene Zuu was built here after Ghengis Khan's death, but was later abandoned as the capital in favour of Beijing. Ghengis Khan founded the greatest Land Empire the world has ever seen, conquering much of China as well as land to the west of Mongolia. In the generations after his death the empire slowly collapsed, and the tribes began to war with each other again. In the 1730s, the Chinese were invited in by on of the warring tribes, and stayed as conquerors until 1911. They ran a hated empire, corrupt, oppressive, and tyrannical. In 1911 a theocracy was established, under the leadership of the Bogd Khan. (This was in many ways similar to the Tibetan government under the Dalai Lama).

Mongolia has a 3485km (2165-mile) border with the Russian Federation in the north and a 4670km (2902-mile) border with China in the south. From north to south it can be divided into four areas: mountain-forest steppe, mountain steppe and, in the extreme south, semi-desert and desert (the latter being about 3 per cent of the entire territory). The majority of the country has a high elevation, with the principal mountains concentrated in the west. The highest point is the peak of Tavan Bogd, in the Altai Mountains, at 4374m (14,350ft). The lowest point, Khukh Nuur lake, in the east, lies at 560m (1820ft). There are several hundred lakes in the country and numerous rivers, of which the Orkhon is the longest at 1124km (698 miles). Official Name: Mongolia
Area: 1,566,500 sq. km. (604,103 sq. mi.); slightly larger than Alaska (land boundaries 8,114 km.).
Terrain: Almost 90% of land area is pasture or desert wasteland, of varying usefulness; 1% arable; 9% forested.
Climate: Continental, with little precipitation and sharp seasonal fluctuations.

Geographical Descriptions The North Largely unpopulated, Northern Mongolia is one of the most beautiful areas of the country with densely forested mountains and steppe. The meadows in spring are blanketed with wildflowers and the air is filled with the voices of migrating birds. Considered by scientists to be the aquatic equivalent of a rainforest, Lake Hovsgol–the "blue pearl" of Mongolia–is found within the country’s largest and most spectacular protected park. Mirroring lush meadows, tall, coniferous taiga forest, and the Sayan mountain range, Lake Hovsgol’s beauty is legendary. Untouched by industry and development, the lake’s water is pure enough to drink and home to a variety of fish including Siberian grayling and lenok. Fed by over ninety rivers and streams, Lake Hovsgol drains only into the Egiin River which then joins the Selenge River, the main tributary of Lake Baikal in neighboring Siberia. Return to Top Travel further afield and find cultural highlights including Kharakhorum, the site of the 13th-century capital of the Mongol Empire. Only a few traces remain of this once great city, but neighboring Erdene Zuu, the country’s largest monastery, was reputedly built from the city’s ruins. Or, visit Arkhangai province, known as the "Switzerland of Mongolia." The provincial capital, Tsetserleg, is home to the Buyandelgeruulekh Monastery which was founded in 1586 and housed almost 1,000 monks at its height of activity. Return to Top The South
