Combining the experience of rural Mongolia with a strong historical presence the town of Dadal has both. A small place, just south of the Siberian border, there is nothing more than a guest house, a home stay, a pub and a few temples. It is, however, a friendly place, where time goes by slowly giving you a chance to take a closer look at rural Mongolian life. That is when you are not busy celebrating the fact that Genghis Khan's birthplace, Delüün Boldog, was most likely right where Dadal is located today. Probably born here in 1162 AD Genghis, or the Khan of Khans rose to become the founder of the Mongol Empire, the largest empire in history. Genghis was famed for his meritocratic administration and hist encouraged religious tolerance. Today, Mongolians regard him as the founding father of their country.
