Darhan

Trip Planner Asia  /  Mongolia  /  Darkhan-Uul Province  /  Darhan
Darkhan is the second largest city in Mongolia and the capital of Darkhan-Uul Aimag . It has a population of 180,738 in 2010.HistoryOn October 17, 1961, the city of Darkhan was built with extensive economic assistance from the Soviet Union. As its name implies, the city was originally conceived to be a manufacturing site for Mongolia's northern territory. The city remains a mostly industrial region and is the home of some 82% of Darkhan-Uul Province's population. As with most urban Mongols, some 86% of the city's population live in residential apartments, with the remaining population living in yurts (gers) on the outskirts of the city.ClimateDarkhan has a borderline humid continental climate (Dwb), close to the more typical subarctic climate (Dwc) of northern Mongolia, which is found in higher areas near the city, and only marginally wet enough to avoid qualifying as a semi-arid climate (BSk). These three climate types tend to overlap a good deal over the border regions of Mongolia, Russia and Kazakhstan. This area has extremely cold and dry winters; however the summers are warmer and more humid.CultureThe Kharagiin monastery is housed in a pretty log cabin in the old town; it has recently become active again as a Buddhist monastery.
