Those who have recently toured Mongolia with a Western company (G Adventures or Dragoman), did you have the opportunity to give little gifts when visiting a ger? What are some appropriate gifts?
My girlfriend and me will be travelling in Mongolia from 20th of June to 20th of July.
We'll be based out of Ub. Our plan is travel to central Mongolia, Gobi and western Mongolia, also visit Naadam festival in Ulan or some local.
We have a friend in Ub, he arranged very cheap van with guide and also recomends us some special places.
You can join us for a part of the trip or travell with us the whole time.
If you are interrested to travel together contact me, we can chat more details of tour…
Hi! Does anyone out there have first hand knowledge of border crossings between Mongolia and Russia? I really want to cross from Mongolia into Russia at the Mondy / Khankh crossing in July, 2017, but haven't been able to find any current information (or really any definitive past information) on whether it is open to anybody outside of Mongolian and Russian citizens. Any ideas?
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with self guided Kayaking in Mongolia.
I was looking to travel with a friend for around 7-10 days along a waterway in Mongolia that can be easily accessed from a larger town. Currently after recommendations for companies that might hire boats, a single 2 man would be ideal. As well as suggestions for rivers to explore. Would prefer minimal to no rapids as wanting to fish, camp and relax along the journey. Would be looking to make journey during…
My family and I are trying to organize the trip from Datong to Ulaanbator for early July and seeing our days don't coincide with the transsiberian express we've been looking at alternative trains. We're planning to leave Datong on Saturday 8 July. Unfortunately I've only found a train (6857) from Jining south that arrives in Erlian at 18.28. I think I found a train from Zamyn Uud that leaves on Saturdays at 21.45 but I don't if we'll be able to cross the border in time???? Does anyone know…
We are a couple from Poland (25 and 27 years old) and we are looking for someone who would like to go to Gobi desert with us. We are thinking about renting 4WD car with driver either in UB or Bajanchongor. If you are planning to visit Gobi in similar date, please let us know.
Good day all,
The wife and me are planning a trip to Mongolia in August 2017.
We would like to rent a Russian Van without a driver, as we not planning to go into the Gobi on ourselves, we need it for a week to explore around UB.
Does anybody know of a rental company that does this, the only one we found charges USD250 a day and that is way to expensive.
We would also consider small Jeep like the UAZ-469
Thank you in advance
Hi All! I will be traveling alone to Mongolia July 3 - July 22 and my number one priority is taking a tour to visit the Tsaatan Community. I already reached out to a bunch of companies. I would love to lower the cost and find some travel buddies that are also looking to go to that area. Let me know if you might be interested and we can chat more.
Hi! I'm planning a 10-days horse trek in Mongolia, and I have a hard time deciding where to do it. I'd like to see iconic landscapes like steppes and green hills, and spend more time on flat terrains than in the mountains. So now, I narrowed my choices to Orkhon and Terelj; both seem really beautiful. Is there anyone who went there and could help me to choose? Thanks so much!
