Mongolia Stopover

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,813

This vast land encompasses a fabulous array of pristine landscapes and a nomadic people whose lives are in many ways unchanged since the days of Genghis Khan and the mighty Mongol Empire.


On this private tour, you stay in hotels AND a ger tented camp (the quintessential Mongolian experience) and visit classic sites.

Mongolia, situated between Russia and China, is the World’s largest landlocked country with a population of only 3 million and was the home of the illustrious Genghis Khan who controlled his vast empire from here. The terrain consists of plains, high mountains, forests, lakes and the famous Gobi Desert and is a nature lover’s paradise.

The capital, Ulaan baatar, combines the traditional and modern. However, the main impression one gets is of a city lost in time. Cows roam the streets and many locals still dress in traditional garb. The city is surrounded by four mountain peaks which are considered holy - Mongolia is a deeply religious country steeped in Buddhism. The focal point of Ulaan baatar is Sukhbaatar Square, a gathering place for celebrations, concerts or simply strolling. The National Museum of Mongolia has a collection of artifacts dating from pre Mongol empire days to the 20th Century.

Kharakhorum was Genghis Khan’s capital around 1220. You can still see remnants of the old city wall today and the Erdene Zuu Monastery is well worth a visit. It is the oldest surviving Buddhist monastery and although still active, operates as a museum and historical site.

Visits to National Parks will reward nature lovers. The Hustai National Park is remote but beautiful and a good place to see the famous wild horses of Mongolia plus good for hiking and trekking. 

The Gandantegzilin monastery is impressive and Tibetan styled with 150 monks in residence.
