Mongolia Adventure Geotour example (Montrails)
Work in Mongolia included a tour in the vicinity of Ulanbataar that showed aspects of the local geology and geological processes and the human history of Mongolia through the stainless steel statue and commemorative museum of Gingis Khan to the human scape of the city developed from being part of the USSR for 70 years from 1920 to its progress as a democratic republic.
The Geological information on processes that created the landscapes and natural resources of Mongolia combined with its human history including the fiercely independent nature and adaptability of its people show why Mongolia conquered much of the known world under Gingis Khan. Mongolia is geographically squeezed between Russia and China, and these neighbours have greatly influenced its history . Currently it is an independent democratic country with new links to Australia through development a Department of Foreign affairs and Trade (DFAT) office in the capital Ulanbataar.
