Where to go in Mongolia?
The capital of Ulaanbaatar is an emerging city that is eager to be recognized globally and while the country is still developing, tourism is gaining in popularity. Ski tour and climb the mountains and glaciers of Western Mongolia, tour the bumpy roads and villages of the county’s heartland in Central Mongolia, and visit the harsh, silent sand dunes of the Gobi desert.
How many days do I need?
Spend anywhere from 4 to 12 days touring Mongolia’s incredible landscape while getting to know its people.
Mongolia’s geographic location in the heart of the Asian landmass - with no ocean to regulate its climate - results in long and frigid winters and a short, blustery spring. By contrast, Mongolia’s three-month summer bursts with activity - with Naadam sports festivals and opportunities to explore the countryside by Jeep, horseback or on foot. Autumn is the time to visit western Mongolia and experience the thrilling eagle festivals of Bayan Ölgii.
Eight hundred years ago the Mongols won an empire on horseback. Follow their path from their ancient capital, Karakorum, up the stunning Orkhon Valley, past waterfalls, hot springs and ancient Buddhist retreats. This nine-day itinerary is perfect for travelers looking for a moderately difficult horse trek that combines history, culture and natural beauty.
Go into the heart of Mongolian wilderness on this five-day trekking tour through Altai Tavan Bogd National Park, one of Mongolia's most exciting natural wonders. You'll spend three days hiking in the park and taking in the pristine beauty of this protected land. You'll also immerse in Mongolian culture with a visit to an eagle hunter village and an overnight stay in a traditional Mongolian gert.
This 10-day tour takes you through some of Mongolia's most impressive cultural and natural wonders. You'll hike to Aglag Buteel Monastery to see surreal Buddhist art, visit Uran Togoo National Park and its extinct volcano, and ride a horse-drawn sleigh on Lake Khuvsgul. Most nights will be spent in traditional gert camps with nomadic families. Of course, you'll also get to see Ulaanbaatar, with city tours of the bustling capital.
Welcome to wild and wonderful Mongolia, where you'll step back in time and travel across the vast plains, steppes, mountains, and deserts of this remote and beautiful country. Sleep in traditional nomadic ger camps, trek across the dunes by camel, swim in crystal clear lakes, explore the ruins of ancient cities and temples from the time of Chinggis Khaan and the Mongol Empire, and wander through the ultra-modern capital—all while enjoying the legendary Mongolian hospitality.
