Hello there, beloved explorers! Do you want to travel Mongolia? Can’t hear you, maybe you’ve already started packing your backpacks and suitcases. Wait a minute, please. Take a pen and a piece of paper. We are going to describe main towns, national parks, and the most popular highlights of this country. At first, write down TOP 7 things to do in Mongolia!

  • Take a selfie with the massive bronze statue of Chinggis Khaan in Ulaanbaatar
  • Pass one or two nights in GER (“yurt”), the portable dwelling of Mongols, feel the local atmosphere
  • Have a horse ride across the National Terelj park to Nomadic Tribes
  • Try “Kumis” – traditional Mongolian dairy product, made of mare’s milk
  • Purchase a shawl made of the most delicate Mongolian cashmere (find the best shops like Goyo, Gobi Cashmere or Buyan, or buy it in the local village)
  • Enjoy the sunset at the impressive Turtle Rock
  • Take pleasure in listening traditional instrumental music during the Mongolian National Folklore Show

All these things you can experience during our Trans Mongolian Tours or you can arrange your Mongolia Tours yourselves after booking train tickets from Moscow to Ulaanbaatar (4 days and 5 hours) or from Irkutsk to Ulaanbaatar (just 36 hours). Of course, in Ulan-Bator there is the Chinggis Khaan International Airport so you can take a plane from Moscow (6 hours) or from Irkutsk (1h30min). Don’t forget to exchange money in the airport or in a bank, as they have a special Mongolian currency – Tughrik (MNT) – 1 USD = 2476,83 MNT; 1 EUR = 2635,1 MNT.
