Excellent. The operator delivered on what was promised. They are knowledgeable and experienced. I feel I experienced most of the various Mongolian climatic areas, from the desert to the mountains and northern lakes. (more)Marian Herz

Mongolia cycling holiday
Memorable parts? Two things: Seeing the Naadam festival. The friendliness and competence of the local staff - two drivers and two cooks. They will remain in my affections forever. Tips? Take a lavalava. It makes an emergency tent when the hot sun is beating down on your head, it can be a towel, a bathrobe, a shoulder covering for temples, a modesty screen when having a public pee stop. Never travel without your lavalava. Local benefits? I couldn't say. I sought out a fair... (more)Monica Holland
From 2399 - 2499 including UK flights
Gobi Desert expedition
Memorable parts? That's a hard decision to make. The Gobi desert in Mongolia awesome. I took around 4000 pictures and movies that we'll put on our website along with a travel log. We really liked the sand dunes and camels. I got some great pictures of horses, camels, people and the environment. It was awesome staying in Ger camps. Our driver, Ot, was awsome. Tips? Be flexible. Know that your guide and driver are very experienced. It's typical for a car to break down but the driver's... (more)Charlotte Lundemo

Golden Eagle Festival in Mongolia
Memorable parts? The actual festival and living with the nomads Tips? Be prepared for the unexpected Local benefits? Yes it probably did I always find this hard to evaluate.

From US $2072 - US $2866 excluding flights
Naadam festival tour, Mongolia
The most memorable part of the holiday was meeting a nomadic family and being welcomed into their home. I liked the way the tour company did this in that it wasn't pre arranged, we just popped in and they were as pleased to learn about us and we were them. (more)Sam Bryant
The eternal blue sky and the wide open spaces - everyone should go to Mongolia the best stress buster there is! (more)Morag Buchan
Marks out of 10 - 10! Just a shame it was over. The vastness of Mongolia is something to be experienced and Ulanbaatar is a lovely city - loved it, loved it. (more)Cat Grant
From 1295 excluding flights
Mongolia family holiday
Memorable parts? Just the sheer beauty of the Mongolian landscape. It surpassed expectations. The wildlife - pairs of golden eagles just sitting by the road! Staying in gers was fun, as was meeting some of the local people and sampling 101 things to do with yak's milk... Tips? The weather is variable so do make sure you bring wet weather gear and a jumper for the evenings, even in summer. Take matches or a lighter for the stoves in your ger. LOADS of camera memory and spare batteries... (more)Helen Bichard
From 1295 - 1495 excluding flights
Horse trekking holiday in Mongolia
Memorable parts? On the day that we rode to the reindeer people, we went up, and down, a mountain covered with the most delicate pine trees, and the forest floor was carpeted with flowers. The silence was absolute, the ground muddy and boggy, with tree roots and loose stones everywhere. The horses didn't put a foot wrong, and the wonderful pack horses amazingly wound their way between the trees without once bumping their enormous packs. It was like being in Fairyland. Tips? Take...

From 2545 including domestic flights only
Family holidays in Mongolia
The opening day of the Nadaam festival at Kharakorum - and stopping for picnics in the middle of nowhere were the most memorable parts of the holiday (more)Archie Smith

From US $1443 - US $2065 excluding flights
Cycling & mountain biking holidays in Mongolia
Hiding out from the rain in a local families nice warm ger being given homemade yaks cheese and yak yoghurt vodka was the most memorable part. (more)Rebecca Drinkwater
Great terrain for mountain biking as there is no traffic apart from the odd inquisitive yak on the path. A total contrast to central London. (more)Andrea McNeill
From US $2645 - US $2895 excluding flights
Holiday in Mongolia
Memorable parts? The solar eclipse. Also visiting a nomadic family one night. Tips? Not really applicable as a one-off trip to see solar eclipse and Mongolia along the way. General tips would be Mongolia is a big country with poor infrastructure. Make sure your trip doesn't involve too much driving or you will spend your whole time on a bus and not out seeing things. Covering 400km in one day, while possible, is not pleasant. Local benefits? Yes and no. It was run by a Mongolian... (more)Sam Grainne
From 1599 excluding flights
Trans-Mongolian Express, Eastbound
The Lake Baikal Homestay and the Mongolian Ger Camp... both have incredible memories for me that will stay with me for life! (more)Heidi Hosgood
I loved the train journey, chatting to the locals, making food, using the hot water urns at the end of the carriage and having the wheels changed on the Mongolia/China border was a fantastic experience. (more)Sally Foote
The most memorable was staying in a ger at Terelj National Park [Mongolia] and walking in the park... The most exciting was seeing the cosmonaut memorial in Moscow and balancing a Kazakh hunting eagle on my arm outside Terelj. (more)Christine Johnstone
From 2268 - 2615 excluding flights

Mongolia travel information

At the centre of the country lies the wide Gobi Desert, bordered to north and south by steppes that are home to traditional nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples. The essential lifestyle of these herders of sheep, horses and camels has changed little since the times of Genghis Khan and Marco Polo, and travelling through their ancient and majestic land is an enlightening experience.

The country's rich flora combines European and Asian species such as anemone, delphinium, primula and several species of orchid, while animal life includes ibex, wild goats and sheep, wolves, elk and brown bear as well as the elusive snow leopard. Stunning mountain passes, high lakes and meadows, rivers and lush valleys provide spectacular scenery and ever-changing views of the ancient landscapes.
