Mongolia covers a territory larger than that of Great Britain, France, Germany and Italy combined and its considerable size includes a fabulous array of pristine landscapes and a nomadic people whose lives are in many ways unaffected from the days of Genghis Khan and his mighty Mongol Empire. This brief tour gives an excellent introduction to this wonderful land and people.
