Reviews for Mongolia tour, winter landscapes and Khovsgol ice festival


review 13 Mar 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The amazing location of the ice festival on the huge frozen lake. People dashing around on horse sleighs. I particularly enjoyed being among local people enjoying the ice sculptures, and spending time with a family in Hartgal. Also, the herds of horses, yaks, cattle and sheep and goats roaming freely all over the countryside. The Deer Stones near Muron were so interesting.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Jess is so helpful and responds to any queries about the trips. I felt confident about booking this tour and well informed about my trip. Let her know what your particular interests are and she will do her best to meet those needs. The weather was cold but if you are dressed appropriately (good headwear, socks and gloves make a difference) it doesn't impact - and the vehicle was always warm when we were travelling around.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we ate local food as much as possible in the cold environment. We had a local guide for the Khovsgol Ice Festival and used local amenities such as the bath house. We stayed with a host family in a countryside ger in the Gorkli-Terelj National Park.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Mongolia is a stunning location to visit. The trip assistants shared their love for their country with us and made it a very memorable experience.
