Travel on a Small Group Tour to Mongolia, with a maximum of 16 travellers, and immerse yourself in this starkly beautiful country. After an overnight stay in Beijing, which includes a visit to the Great Wall at Jinshanling, board the Trans-Mongolian Express, escorted by your Western tour leader. From arriving in Mongolia’s capital, Ulaan Baatar, where you’ll sample its surprisingly cosmopolitan culture, Mongolian guides will enhance your experience of this rugged nation with their local insights.
The landscapes are overpowering: roam the alpine terrain of Khuvsgul Lake, ride by horse to an extinct volcanic crater at Terkhiin Tsagaan Nuur, and soak in Tsenkheriin’s hot springs. But it’s the tenacity of the people that is truly inspiring. Visit a reindeer herder family at Khuvsgul Lake, and the locals protecting the endangered Takhi, wild horses, at Khustai National Park.
