A group of researchers with funding from National Geographic and armed with a plethora of technology and gadgets are undertaking an expedition to locate the lost tomb of one of the world's greatest and most ruthless emperors, Genghis Khan.
It’s one of the few great archaeological mysteries of the world, and now a bunch of gadget-wielding geeks are going to try and solve it. The tomb of Genghis Khan, founder of the Mongol empire and one of the world’s greatest and most ruthless emperors, has remained hidden for nearly eight centuries.

Maybe they could look for the Mongolian death worm while they're up there?

Hmm this all seems very similar to a Clive Cussler book i read a few days ago.

Maybe they could look for the Mongolian death worm while they're up there? I think their efforts will be more fruitful discovering a historical figure such as Genghis Khan rather than chasing a cryptid in the sands.

I thought the sucessor of Khan (one of his sons?) told 100 men to take his body and build a tomb, when they got back they were all executed. Then the people who executed the 100 were killed as well. I don't know why they had to keep Khan's grave so secret, Although he was one of the best generals the world has ever seen (on par with alexander).
