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.

Mongolia tour, Mongolia - Jun 15 - Jun 21, 2019
I contacted Oyunerdene back in March. She was quick to respond and provided me a tentative plan. Later, I changed my returned date and stayed for 3 more days in Mongolia. She was quick to accommodate for those days as well.
