The name Mongolia conjures up images of Genghis Khan's terrifying army sweeping across the steppes - Mongolia's most famous son might do a double-take at the modern city of Ulaanbaatar, but he'd recognise much of Mongolia even today. Many locals still live in the traditional circular felt tents called gers, and Mongolian children learn to ride almost before they can walk.
A journey through this wild country is a journey through some of the most remote areas on the planet. With a stunning, wide-open landscape, dramatic mountain ranges, the wilderness of the Gobi Desert and beautiful alpine lakes, Mongolia is a fantastic place to experience nature in the raw. Monoglia also has an enchanting and unique culture, and we will embrace every aspect of it as we explore this vast wilderness. From the phenomenal traditional 'throat-singing', to the country's interesting cuisine (featuring the acquired taste of fermented horse milk!), to the Buddhist temples, to the traditions of the etiquette of a ger visit, the culture is fascinating and a world away from Western life.
