Map of Mongolia

Mongolia's capital is Ulaanbaatar, which is also the biggest city of the country. Flights to Mongolia usually go to Ulaanbaatar. Other important towns are Ulaangom, Ölgij, Hovd, Mörön, Uliastaj, Altaj, Darhan, Erdenet, Tsetserleg, Bayanhongor, Manjuur and Chojbalsan. In Mongolias's north are located large lakes (Uvs Nuur, Hövsgöl Nuur), in the south there is the Gobi desert (in Mongolian Gob).
The official language of Mongolia is Mongolian. Minorities speak Kazakh, Uighur and other languages.
Traditionally Mongolian was written in the classical Mongolian script, which is an alphabet written from top to bottom, and was developed from an old Uighur script. In 1940 the Mongolians were forced under Soviet pressure to adopt the Cyrillic script, which has been official since then. The classical Mongolian script survived in Inner Mongolia (which belongs to China), where it has not been promoted and tought in schools, but at least it has not been directy suppressed since it has always remained official.
Since a few years Mongolia intended to restore the classical Mongolian script in Mongolia, they seem to start teaching it in schools, and it has received official status. On our map we have given all localities in the Latin, Cyrillic and classical Mongolian scripts. The classical Mongolian script is unique in the world as it is the only official script written from top to bottom and left to right.
Tourism is of lower importance in Mongolia. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to Mongolia.

This is our Map of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100 cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country, by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous maps.

The map can be ordered for 11.50 Euros (+ postage and packing) at www.wissenladen.de.

 

Sources on which the information contained in this map is based:

 

The vegetational base map was aligned with satellite pictures from Google Earth.

The official names of the countries are quite well researched at www.geonames.de.

Also here you can find information on the geography of many countries: www.geographixx.de.

The numbers of inhabitants of the cities were taken from www.citypopulation.de.

And the mountain peak altitudes were largely derived form www.peakbagger.com.
