Mongolia has more than its fair share of beautiful unspoiled scenery and you don’t have to go far from the capital Ulaanbaatar to experience this.
★ MEET THE WILDLIFE
There are plenty of horses everywhere but on longer trips you are also likely to see camels and perhaps gazelles amongst a wide variety of wildlife.

Once an the extraordinary capital of the Mongolian Empire there is little left these days but the sense of history is special as is the journey to reach here.

The presence of Mongolia’s national hero can be felt throughout the country with monuments and stories of the great Khan part of the travel experience.
★ REMOTE SOLITUDE
One of the great Mongolian travel experiences is being in a remote ger camp at dusk when the silence of the night settles over the land – unforgettable.
★ WILD HORSES
You will see plenty of Mongolia’s tough small horses during your travels but little beats seeing a semi-wild herd running free on the open steppe.
★ EAST GOBI PROVINCE
The train line from Ulaanbaatar to Beijing runs through the East Gobi, a rugged landscape of camel herders, dinosaur fossils and remote monasteries.

Mongolia is full of tough, friendly and resourceful people who are fiercely proud of their country. And then there is the odd camel as well!
★ GER CAMP IN WINTER
The Ger Camps stay open all year round and you’ll get to see just how cosy these homes can be. Cool in the Summer but equally snug and warm in winter they are as adaptable as the people who live in them.
