Travelling in Mongolia is very special indeed. The huge, near-empty landscapes are quite remarkable and give a unique atmosphere. On your Mongolia tour, you will see rolling green hills with a few sightings of gers (Mongolian tents), camels or Mongolian horsemen.
Ulan Bator is the capital of Mongolia, surrounded by mountains and at an elevation of 1350 meters, possibly the coldest capital in the world! The town itself has a number of examples of Russian architecture and you must visit the Gandan Khiid Monastery, the largest and most significant in Mongolia.
The vast Gobi Desert is dotted with horses, cows, sheep and goats. Silence befalls and the night sky, filled with dazzling stars, is truly extraordinary! Take a Mongolia tour and travel on the Trans-Siberian express train, the best way to absorb the scale of the colossal Siberian and Mongolian landscapes.
