Mongolia vacations 2020 & 2021
Vacations to Mongolia are a journey into a terrain and lifestyle that’s worlds apart from most Westerners’ day-to-day reality. Our specialists will tell you to venture outside the capital, Ulaan Baatar, and witness how developed infrastructure quickly peters out as the yawning grassland steppe opens up. The horizons feel wider here, and your field of vision stretches to take in the landscapes. They include Gobi dunes glowing like fire, glacier-streaked mountainscapes, and meadows grazed by endangered wild takhi horses.
Our specialists are drawn again and again to this former Soviet satellite that’s throwing off its past while remaining firmly under the radar. They’ll plan your Mongolia trip to suit your travel ambitions. They’ll explain how to navigate the vast distances or ride the Mongolian leg of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Or, they can arrange for you to stay in a ger camp, visit active Buddhist monasteries or explore Karakorum, once Genghis Khan’s stronghold.
