Prior to attending the seminar, members of the International expedition visited the Burkhan Khaldun Mountain, Genghis Khan's birthplace.
It is planned that the expedition group will conduct archeological excavations and explore ancient Turkic memorial complexes such as Hayaa Khudag and Gunburd.

It should be noted that the expedition route inscludes most important places for the ancient Turkic history in Mongolia and Kazakhstan. Thus, the expedition starts at the Burkhan Khaldun Mountain and ends at the Mausoleum of Alasha Khan and Joshy Khan in Ulutau.
