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’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.

Moscow to bejing via mongolia, Mongolia - Oct 13 - Oct 24, 2018
Dear Kim Kim
I apologise for not writing before but my journey after Mongolia continued to China and I have had yet more adjustments to make and a culture shock as well! I may never have left Mongolia if such an opportunity existed. It is an exciting and beautiful country like no other and my visit there was in no small way life changing. That is to say I will never again look at a map of the world without my gaze first falling on Mongolia and being reminded of beauty and... read more
Mongolia, Mongolia - Sep 29 - Oct 5, 2018
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.
Highlights of mongolia, Mongolia - Jul 18 - Aug 2, 2018
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
