Foreign Travel Advice

A trip through Mongolia is one that is guaranteed to be memorable and eventful; it will be an unforgettable adventure, rather than just a holiday! Mongolia is one of the last unspoiled travel destinations in the world, where nomadic herders still tend to their flocks amongst vast grasslands, Gers remain the accommodation of choice and it's still possible to travel for days without meeting another person. The country is an overlander's paradise, with challenging roads, stunning scenery and a unique and welcoming culture. The Mongolian people, their culture and the landscape is what this journey is so much about. From Ulaanbaatar we will head west through the central region of Mongolia, past Erdene Zuu monastery to the natural beauty of the Orkhon Valley and the Tsenkher hot springs We then make the journey north to the remote and spectacular Khovsgol Lake before heading back towards the capital.

This is not just a holiday, it's an adventure; it is one of our more unpredictable journeys, where roads are limited, rivers rise and the itinerary changes. Wild camping, with limited washing facilities, Ger home stays and a few hotels may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you have a spirit of adventure and are prepared to go outside a limited comfort zone, this is an amazing trip. No wonder it is so popular.
