Amarbysgalant Khiid, one of Mongolia's three most important monasteries, is set in a secluded river valley in between Darkhan and Erdenet cities. More so than the other major monasteries (Gandan in Ulaanbaatar and Erdene Zuu in Kharkhorin), Amarbysgalant is full of an engaging energy, and a friendly community of monks. The monastery's architecture is gorgeous, and the beautiful surroundings certainly help. Grab a car from one of the nearby cities, spend a few hours wandering through the monastery, then hike through the valley towards the white stupas (Buddhist monuments) on the far side of the river. Try camping on the ridge above the stupas on a moonlit night without being awestruck by the beauty of the place.
