Introducing Mongolia

Mongolians are beautiful nomadic people who understand the desire to travel. This, combined with Mongolia's rugged, remote, landscape, and a dizzyingly sophisticated capital city make Mongolia a surprising and refreshing destination.

When is the best time to visit?
Expect warm and mostly dry weather June through August, although you might witness the occasional thunderstorm.

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 Travel Insights

Highlights of Mongolia

Mongolia ranks high on the bucket list for adventurous travelers in search of Earth’s last untouched landscapes. The following is a list of top destinations to tick off while visiting the stomping grounds of Ghengis Khan.

Horse trekking in Orkhon Valley
Horse Trekking In The Orkhon Valley - 14 Days

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.

Best Time To Visit Mongolia

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.

Mongolia, Mongolia - Sep 29 - Oct 5, 2018

Traveler: Anna R. - Local specialist: Enguerran Zandonai

The trip was amazing. Can’t describe how good it was. We had the most fantastic guide (Oyu) and driver (Banzar) and really got immersed into the Mongolian culture. Amazing place with so much scenery, lots of driving but you need to be prepared for that going to Mongolia anyway. Everyone was so kind and wanted to do what they could to help us and make our trip special. Passed some others on trips but ours was quite private so didn’t have much communication.
Kimkim was very organised and we knew what to expect and everything ran very smoothly.

My Nephew and I went to Mongolia on a private trip (with our own special pathway through desert) (end of july 2018). This was wonderfully prepared by Horseback Travel and Enguerran. We had a perfect trip with memorable times with our Driver Khurle and guide Tsevelmaa from pick up at airport to the dropoff there again. We really enjoyed the whole trip and had countless stunning views throughout those 16 days. I did not know that the desert has so many faces (and all are wonderful). Food,... read more

My Nephew and I went to Mongolia on a private trip (with our own special pathway through desert) (end of july 2018). This was wonderfully prepared by Horseback Travel and Enguerran. We had a perfect trip with memorable times with our Driver Khurle and guide Tsevelmaa from pick up at airport to the dropoff there again. We really enjoyed the whole trip and had countless stunning views throughout those 16 days. I did not know that the desert has so many faces (and all are wonderful). Food, lodging, day trips, excursions, transfers between places: everything well thought about and clear communication if somethings had to be discussed/planned further.

If i have to pick out few places i have to mention these 2: Shireet lake (stunning view and swim) with the walk from the family up the mountain and down to the lake (and of course back) and Khermen Tsav, the most remote place i have ever been uptil now but so nice and peaceful i would always go back there again.

We had a wonderful trip to Mongolia! I had contacted several different agencies before I discovered Enguerran with Horseback Mongolia and decided to work with him through kimkim.

We had a wonderful trip to Mongolia! I had contacted several different agencies before I discovered Enguerran with Horseback Mongolia and decided to work with him through kimkim. He was able to provide excellent advice and put together a custom itinerary for us that combined different elements during the exact dates we needed. We really wanted to combine an autonomous hike in the Khangai Mountains as well as seeing the Gobi desert. Enguerran designed the perfect trip to include 4 days/nights hiking/camping, several nights staying with yak or camel breeding families and several nights in ger camps. We were a bit apprehensive about staying with the families, but that turned out to be a great experience. The hiking and camping with yaks carrying our belongings was amazing. The Gobi desert was bigger than ever imagined. Our driver and guide were helpful and always made us feel safe and well taken care of. We only regretted not being able to communicate better with our driver and the yak men. Now that we have been home for a while, we have been able to reflect on our experiences. Mongolia truly is a country of wide open spaces, few roads and very friendly people. We felt honored to be able to see the places we did and get a peak into a nomad's life, before these lifestyles vanish. Enguerran was always responsive to my questions and all details had been taken care of to allow for a very smooth trip. He was able to combine our requests with our available dates for the perfect, custom trip. Highly recommend!
