I was born in a small town called Ugtaal and grew up with my grandparents in the countryside. We lived in a ger (traditional yurt) and moved from one place to another according to a season. Just as every other nomadic kid, I learned to ride a horse when I was 5 and herded sheep, goats, cows, and horses daily.
To me it was just a normal way of living and only when I moved to the UK for my undergraduate degree, I realized that the way Mongolian nomads live is one of the oldest and most distinctive cultures in the world.
So after studying and working abroad for nearly 10 years, I moved back to Mongolia to share the beauty and culture of my country to travelers all around the world.

Featured trips & expertise
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.
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.

Oyu planned a wonderful 10days roadtrip for us. There were 6 of us (grandparents, 2 kids and us).

Highlights of Mongolia · Mongolia - May 23 - May 26, 2019
I was very pleased with the way that Oyunerdene organized my tour based on the information I provided to her. I was able to experience Mongolia’s nature, wildlife and people. The nomadic family I stayed with was great and their gers were in a beautiful setting next to a river and surrounded by gorgeous green hills packed with horses, sheep and goats. My tour guide, Jagaa, and driver, Gambaa, were friendly and genuinely nice, they showed me the warm welcoming attitude of Mongolian people.
I couldn’t have been happier. Thanks to them.
