"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

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. Learn more

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
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.

Explore Mongolia
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.
