Reviews for Mongolia cycling & mountain biking holidays


review 13 Mar 2010

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

Excellent trip but the highlight has got to be the stunning country side. Wasnít sure what to expect but the mountains were tough to cycle up but fun to come down. Hiding out from the rain in a local families nice warm ger being given homemade yaks cheese and yak yoghurt vodka. The locals were so friendly

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

Take plenty of warm clothing and a warm sleeping bag as the temperature really drops at night and it can get really cold despite the temperature during the day. Donít try the local Arag! A local weak alcoholic drink made from mares milk but it is an acquired taste - tastes like gone off milk!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes. They donít light fires (no matter how cold it is!) as wood is rare and should be left for the locals. All rubbish is taken away and empty water bottles are given to locals for reuse to sell their Arag.

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

Fantastic - fully recommend it.
