Sample the nomadic life of the Mongolian people as you help with herding yaks, ride horses and camp in traditional ‘gers’ (yurts) during a fantastic tour. There is a totally different attitude to living here, with most Mongolians enjoying a nomadic existence, moving their family and livestock with them as the seasons change. Upon visiting remote villages and major cities, such as the capital of Ulaan Baatar, you will begin to understand why many of the limited visitors that this country receives rave about the hospitality of its people.
Mongolia is a large country (18th in the world by area) but it’s only home to just over two million people. In fact, there are almost as many horses living there are there are people. Its size, however, does offer many travel options when heading out on an adventure across this secret Asian realm. There’s the option of cycling across the vast open plains, as well as the chance to ride the iconic Trans-Siberian railway, stopping in Russia and China during your tour too.
Along the way, you will discover extinct volcanoes, venture into the Gobi Desert and see the dinosaur burial ground around the Flaming Cliffs' of Bayanzag. All on a trip that cannot be described as anything less than unique.
