This excellent Mongolia tour offers a brilliant introduction to this extraordinarily beautiful country, covering the nation’s capital Ulaanbaatar, famous Gobi Desert and spectacular Terelj National Park and visits to Mongolian nomadic families for authentic cultural experience and interactions.
Located in the landlocked plateau of Central Asia between China and Russian Siberia, Mongolia is the 19th largest country in the world. Thus, Mongolia’s considerable size includes a great range of pristine landscapes and a nomadic people whose lives are unaffected from the days of Genghis Khan.
