Many people visualise Mongolia as an arid land of emptiness from where the blood-thirsty warlord Genghis Khan arose to power in the 13th century. In fact, Mongolia is much more than just a vast land and a past history – Mongolia is a great destination for travelling in wilderness, enjoying tranquillity, exploring wondrous culture and feeling the nomadic spirit. A peaceful land of Buddhist people and the first democratic country in Central Asia – Mongolia is an emerging travel destination where the traditional culture and modernisation blend perfectly.
1. Home of the last nomadic nation on earth whose lives are not changed in many ways since the days of the mighty Mongol empire. You will meet and make friends with the friendliest people who will welcome you with big true smiles on their faces and open arms. You may as well come across to local events such as felt making, children’s hair cutting ceremony, foal branding and Mongolian costume deel making and such during your journey.
2. Pristine nature and breathtaking scenery will amaze you everywhere you go – Mongolia is the 19th largest country by territory and the vast land means a wide array of nature zones such as the mysterious Gobi Desert, Great Mongolian steppe, majestic Altai mountains, lush green Khangai mountains, Asia’s dark blue pearl Lake Huvsgul, and Genghis Khan’s birthplace Khentii mountains, and sceneries change to more and more admiration.
3. A great range of adventure activities you can take pleasure in starting from the famous Mongolian horse treks, Bactrian camel riding, yak cart travel, Taimen fishing, Reindeer riding, mountain biking, hiking, trekking, rafting, kayaking and many more!
4. Some of the most colourful festivals that one will ever take part in – just like the exotic nomadic culture - the Mongolian festivals are truly unique such as the Great Naadam Festival consisting of Mongolian wrestling, archery and horse racing, Golden Eagle Festival and the Nomads’ Day Festival to name a few.
