The ‘Land of Blue Sky’, Mongolia is one of Asia’s last untouched wildernesses and home to the vast Gobi Desert. A trip into this arid landscape is one of the country's most rewarding things to do with a climb to the top of the Khongoryn Els dunes offering sweeping views of towering mounds of sand.
Alternatively, take a camel ride to the Flaming Cliffs of Byanazag, the world's largest dinosaur graveyard, or explore the striking Winter Palace of Bogd Khaan in the capital, Ulaan Bataar. Finally, spend some time with a nomadic family to experience local life and spend a night in a ger, Mongolia’s traditional accommodation.
