The most beautiful place in Mongolia.

Hello, my darling and I are travelling to Mongolia next year and would like to get married while we are there. Neither of us have been there before so I was hoping that someone who has been there might be able to suggest a place that took their breath away. We would love to get married somewhere beautiful.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Mongolia itinery planning.

I am beginning to plan my trip to Mongolia next year. So far key objectives are;

Mörön - Lake Hovsgol or alternative Kharakhorum Gobi Desert - Hongoryn Els, Khavtsgait, Yol Valley, Flaming Cliffs The Altai Mountains, Eagle hunters

I intend on travelling during September, and as much as possible I would live to travel independently, is this going to be feasible? With the exception of Kharakhorum, I am currently anticipating spending a week each in area, again is this sufficient…

5 a side football

Hello all,

This may be a shot in the dark and it is very possible that no one will be up for it but me and 6 of my friends will be in Ulaanbaatar from February the 26th to the 28th 2015 whilst on trip from Moscow to Tokyo.

Would any one we may have a team in Ulaanbaatar or has a few friends who may be interested like to have a game of 5 aside football with a bunch of Welsh and English lads who just want a good time really. Maybe we could have a game of footy and then you could show us…

Russia Altai to Western Mongolia

I'm thinking of trying to go from Russia to Olgii, Mongolia for a climb of Tavan Bogd next summer but unsure how to get there without my own car. I could go via Irkutsk/Ulan-Ude to Ulaan Bataar then spend way too many days in jeeps which would be painful and not cheap. But there may be a bus thru the Altai.

From Wiki:

"There is a bus from Tsagaannuur, Mongolia to Astana, Kazakhstan that passes through Altai Krai and the Altai Republic."

Where is Tsagaanuur? I put it in google maps and it…

Golden Eagle Festival

Hi all, I will be attending the golden eagle festival in a few days in Olgii, as I am sure many others are too. I am wondering on the accommodation situation as it seems there are only a couple of hotels in town and not much info on ger camps etc.

Does anyone know if it be possible to camp or stay in gers at the actual venue (which I believe is a few km outside of the town)? - And how this might be arranged?

Thanks,
Matt

Cooking in the field

Hi

I want to travel from UB to Kazachstan (and onwards West). I'm not sure how to do this yet, will arrive end of march 2015 in UB. I feel like cooking every evening but in Europe I cook on a fire. Will this be possible in Mongolia? Is there wood to gather? And I can haul some things like rice and water but aside from that, what will be best when trekking? Fuel can by brought but is finite and smells in my backpack. Gas canisters are I assume impossible to find. Which leaves... a wood stove!

The unwritten laws of the mongolian steppes

I often hear about them ( the unwritten laws of the Mongolian steppes) when I hear stories about Mongolians nomads or stories about the Genghis Khan empire. I just wonder what they are. If somebody knows them, I would like to know what they are.
