This vast and stunning land-locked country is home to authentic Nomadic culture, incredible landscapes and unparalleled hospitality. Not many people put Mongolia on their to-visit list and here are 10 reasons why you should reconsider:

1. The Gobi Desert

This immense and cold desert is the source of many important fossil finds over the years. The discovery of the first dinosaur egg proved The Gobi was once native land for dinosaurs.

2. Nomadic Culture

Mongolia is a land whose people still embrace the old ways and you can embrace it with them.

3. The animals

Mongolia is home to the rare two-humped Bactrian camels, as well as herds of wild horses, snow leopards, wild sheep, Saiga Antelope, grey wolves, Gobi bear and an array of bird and aquatic life.

4. Mongolian hospitality

You’ll find some of the friendliest people in the vast lands of this country. Be ready for endless offerings including salted cow’s milk tea, and be sure to bring small gifts of your own to return the favour!

5. UB’s Black Market

Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar (UB), is home to the Black Market – a (mostly) legal market that has nearly everything you could possibly want or need.


6. True adventure travel

For those seeking something out of the ordinary, off-the-beaten-track and not your typical check-list tourist destination (Eiffel Tower – check!), Mongolia is the perfect place for you. You won’t find much luxury in this country, but you’ll find adventure and memories that will surely last a lifetime.

7. The Naadam Festival

Plan your trip around the famous Naadam Festival and prepare for Mongolia’s biggest festival of the year, with competitions in archery, horse riding and wrestling.

8. The views

Prepare your eyes and cameras for endless WOW-moments. Bring extra batteries.

9. Gers

A great portion of the population live in portable, cozy homes called gers. These round structures can sleep the whole family and are dismantled and moved as the family moves with the seasons.

10. Unique experiences

I have no doubt you’ll have a lot of unique, what-was-that-all-about moments in Mongolia.
