I'm starting a trip from the UK to China mid-July and was hoping to pick up a Chinese visa in Ulaanbaatar?
Does anyone done this recently? People do seem to have got the visa but there doesn't seem to be any up-to-date information?
Thanks for the help,
does anyone know if the boat crossing lake Khovsgol from Khatgal (South) to Khankh/Turt (North) is in service this season? Information regarding the schedule and prices would be helpful too.
Do independent travelers require a border permit for the Northern Shore of lake Khovsgol?
Thank you & cheers,
We are a French-Italian couple travelling in Mongolia from 31st July to 20th August and looking for travel mates to travel two regions: Gobi desert and Western Mongolia.
Our plan is to book a customized tour with a reliable operator (Sunpath Mongolia for example) for a roadtrip. We have many ideas for activities (horseriding, hiking, mountaineering, rafting or mountain biking...) but are open on the programme and journey.
We are experienced travellers and speak a few languages…
We are a married couple, planning to visit Gun Galuut, Khustai Terelj NP, Naiman nuur, Lake khuvsgul & northern forests in the last 2 weeks of sepetmber for 15 days. We are looking for like-minded people we can share the trip with. We are both below 30 & we love nature. Together we can cut some costs. We have booked a tour with altai nomadic. Do let me know.. I can share more details.
I had been trying to buy online and with an agency the very last ticket from Khovd to Ulan Bator for October 4th but has been impossible.
I would like to know if is actually possible to buy one ticket at the airport? I mean is that usual or possible ?
See the complete details of all Naadam events throughout Mongolia.
The national Naadam events will take place at the capital Ullanbaatar during 11-15 July 2016
The spectacular opening and closing ceremonies will be held at the central stadium in Ulan Bator.
Horse racing will be held at Khui Doolon Khudag 16km west of UB, see location on Google map.
Tickets for tourist cost $25 and will become available from July 6th, through tour operators and hotels.
Provincial Naadam and other countryside…
I was trying to make a reservation for a flight from Olgii or Khovd to Ulan Bator but there are no more flights.
I mean at least from October 3rd to 5th. I am leaving from Ulan Bator back home on October 5th late at night.
Probably that is because the eagle hunter festival that is actually taking place from October 1st to 2nd in Olgíi-
Does anyone knows if the bus ride or shared taxi actually stops during the long bus ride? I know it takes about two to three days. But when I mean stops I am…
I'm in Olgii between 9th July and 16th July hoping to do an as‐budget‐as‐possible hike in Altai Tavan Bogd. Is anyone else thinking of doing the same thing and would like to join up to reduce costs?
I am heading to UB for Nadaam and to meet up with my husband for our honeymoon!! Hyper excited! We are staying in an airbnb over the festival but will be picking up hire motorbikes to Tri around for 10 days. He already has all the camping gear, tent, stove, chair etc, all I need to get is a sleeping mat and a sleeping bag.
Where is the best place to buy this type of thing? I will be on UB for a week or so post the festival do could probably buy second hand as well.
