Ulaanbaatar, Uran Togoo, Khuvsgul Lake, Arkhangai, Ulaan Tsutgalan, Uvurkhangai, Umnugobi & Yoln Am
This year we thought we would introduce something new and exciting for Southeast Asia! Mongolia is a land of mystery, relatively untouched by Western travellers. However the beautiful local nomadic people, traditional yet still comfortable accommodation (stay in a yert!), and breathtakingly unique scenery make it a destination that everyone should visit! From deserts to waterfalls, camels to reindeer, the natural highlights and wildlife on this trip will definitely make it one to remember. We have stayed true to our high standards by using high quality (sometimes themed) accommodation, and most of your meals are included so you sample delicious local cuisine.
