Why travel to Mongolia?
Mongolia is at the heart of Asia, on the perfect balance between the ‘East’ of China, and the vast wilderness of Siberia in Russia. This vast, sparsely populated land encompasses a fabulous array of pristine landscapes and a nomadic people whose lives are in many ways unchanged from the days of Genghis Khan and the mighty Mongol Empire. Here, where nomadic herders still depend on nature for survival, you’ll find priceless luxuries tours to Mongolia like open space, untouched wilderness, and pristine air and water in abundance, each cherished by the Mongolian people.
And as the 19th largest country in the world, Mongolia’s considerable size means an enormous variety of landscapes, and plenty of room for guests. Awesome expanses of rolling steppe, home to Mongolia”s famous horses and herdsmen, meet high glacial mountains, impenetrable forests and deep, crystal lakes. Like the Mongol Empire of Genghis Khaan’s time that stretched from Japan to Hungary, Mongolia today remains a place of natural and cultural diversity and nearly endless possibilities for discovery and adventure.
