I didn't enjoy the time I spent there. The site was under renovation. Therefore from outside it was only possible to see the scaffolding all around the mausoleum. How disappointing! I should have informed about that beforehand at the ticket office but nobody took the initiative to let me know there where works in progress...business is business. Furthermore there was no discount because of the inconvenience. I had to pay full price to see what? Inside, differently from other places in China, the staff members where pretty strict on allowing visitors to take pictures. Therefore I couldn't take any picture as a memory of my visit. Last but not the least I visited the so called "Residence of Genghis Khan" which was something that made me chuckle as this complex was launched in 1977. My advice is to eventually go to Genghis Khan mausoleum only once the renovation is over. However the best place to know more and more about the Mongolian ruler is to visit the place he was born in, which is far away from the place where the mausoleum is located.

Am here with a tour group from Singapore. It is much better if you can have a staff to follow you throughout to help explain the history of Genghis Khan and his life's accomplishments.
There is much walking and not advisable for those with weak knees or heart.
The venue is filled with many stories, drawings and antiques left from the Mongolian dynasty (actually known as Yuan dynasty). If you are an avid fan of the great Genghis Khan who expanded his territory as far as Europe and Middle East, this is the place to know him better.

Worth visiting and worthwhile to hire a guide to take you through the history of Genghis Khan and the museum.

We traveled from Baotou to the Mausoleum with a short visit to the City of Ordos. The place is historical and quiet significant to the Mongolian. We paid the extra $150 RMB for the guide, which she gave a detailed description of the site and historical significance of the mausoleum. The entrance fee is $150RMB per person; you will have access to all areas. All employees in this park is of Mongolian descent and spoke both Mandarin and Mongolian. In the vicinity of the park you could ride the Mongolian horse or camel. I was impressed of the fact that the guardian of the mausoleum is actually the descendants of a Mongolian general and they have been guarding the site for nearly 800 years.
