Take a walk on the wild side
For most of the 20th century, Mongolia was isolated from the rest of the world and a sense of absolute remoteness still exists there today. If you love the outdoors, you’ll be in your element – desert, mountains, alpine lakes and grasslands all combine to create a true wilderness experience that’s like no other on Earth. Don’t confuse wilderness with wasteland though; Mongolia is far more than horses, grass and fresh air: its wide-open plains are home to towering sand dunes, magical ice canyons and flora and fauna that exist nowhere else – ingredients that suggest nothing but pure adventure. An untouched land makes for an unpolluted sky and as night falls over the spectacular Mongolian countryside the endless blue sky becomes a backdrop of bright stars: your personal lightshow to lie below and simply watch in awe.
