Mongolia Vacations, Tours & Travel Packages
Mongolia, situated between Russia and China, is the World’s largest landlocked country with a population of only 2.8 million and was the home of the illustrious Genghis Khan who controlled his vast empire from here. The terrain consists of plains, high mountains, forests, lakes and the famous Gobi Desert and is a nature lover’s paradise on a Mongolia vacation.
The capital, Ulaan Bataar, combines the traditional and modern. However, the main impression one gets is of a city lost in time. Cows roam the streets and many locals still dress in traditional garb. The city is surrounded by four mountain peaks which are considered holy - Mongolia is a deeply religious country steeped in Buddhism. The focal point of Ulaan Baatar is Sukhbaatar Square, a gathering place for celebrations, concerts or simply strolling.
One highlight not to be missed on Mongolia tours is Naran Tuul, or the “Black Market”, the World’s largest market which 60,000 people visit daily. The city has a total of eight different museums from which to learn more about the culture of Mongolia.
Karakorum was Genghis Khan’s capital around 1220. You can still see remnants of the old city wall today and the Erdene Zuu Monastery is well worth a visit.
Visits to National Parks will reward nature lovers. The Hustai National Park is remote but beautiful and a good place to see the famous wild horses of Mongolia plus good for hiking and trekking. Khustain Nuruu Nature Reserve was opened in 1993 to preserve the large herds of wild horses.
A visit to Mongolia would not be complete without including the Gobi Desert. The word desert is really a misnomer as, although there are sand dunes, there are also mountains, springs and forests. One of the “stars” is the amazing clear blue sky. An enjoyable experience here is a stay in one of the gers or yurts as we know them – large tents, also used as homes by country people.
