Why travel to Mongolia?

The nature of the Mongolian national parks is staggeringly beautiful. Here the animals roam freely and it feels like entering a completely different, very exotic, world. Riding across the steppe on a Mongolian horse is an experience of a lifetime. Another special experience is spending a night in a yurt, a traditional Mongolian tent.

The capital city of Ulan Bataar is an exotic experience with a mix of Soviet architecture and ancient temples. The country also offers interesting flavours, such as products made from horse milk. Find tips and inspiration for your trip to Mongolia here.
