Get ready to discover somewhere really out of the ordinary...

Travelling to Mongolia

Mongolia is known for overland travel and forms part of famous rail routes such as the Trans Mongolian. Many will therefore enter the country overland. Alternatively, if travelling by air your likely entry point with be the capital Ulaanbaatar with a connecting flight from locations such as Frankfurt, Moscow and Beijing. Most nationalities will require a tourist visa to visit Mongolia, so make sure you check what documentation you need ahead of time.

When to Visit Mongolia

Given its central continental location, temperatures in Mongolia are extreme. From December to February temperatures drop to the low minuses. Spring and autumn are prone to changeable weather and hover between freezing and around 9 degrees Celsius. June to August sees warmer temperatures reaching the mid twenties with the odd storm. The famous Nadaam festivals usually take place in July - an amazing time to visit but be sure to book transport and accommodation in advance.

MONGOLIA TOP PLACES TO VISIT

Ulaanbaatar

For all the serenity of the majority of Mongolia, the capital Ulaanbaatar is a huge contrast. This chaotic, booming city couldn't be more different to the peacefulness of the plains. As the economic centre of the country, this city is a strange hive of modernity colliding with the ancient and traditional. Be sure to visit Gandan Khiid and Choijin Lama Temple and the National Museum of Mongolia.

The Gobi Desert

This is a place to get away from it all. The vast expanses of sand dunes are awe-inspiring and give the feeling of being alone in the world. As the scenery changes you'll encounter incredible canyons and never ending plains - dramatic and other-worldly. Camel riding through the desert gives a sense of travelling back in time, as does staying at a traditional Ger camp, a truly memorable experience.

Kharkhorin

Once the ancient capital of the Mongol Empire, Kharkhorin is today known for its fascinating Erdene Zuu Khiid, the oldest surviving Buddhist monastery in Mongolia. There are numerous Ger camps in the area, great for experiencing local living. The town is a good base to explore the surrounding area - the beautiful lakes of Naiman Nuur, the foothills of the Khangai Mountains and the Orkhon Valley.
