Once the heartland of Genghis Khan’s mighty Mongol empire, now sandwiched between its giant neighbours, Russia and China, Mongolia is often overlooked. But the raw beauty of this nation is quite startling.
Rolling desert sand dunes of the South Gobi, expansive grassy plains, thick alpine forests of Hovsgol National Park, deep crystal lakes: you will feel humbled by the power of nature in Mongolia. The resourceful Mongolian people work alongside this power to eke out a nomadic living on the plains among the wild horses. Stay in a Ger, the traditional felt tent, to gain an insight into their unique lifestyle on our Small Group tour. Our holidays also offer the opportunity to ride the Trans-Mongolian Railway and experience the famous Naadam Festival.
