Tourism in Mongolia


Tourism in Mongolia was extremely limited by the Communist Government, but has been expanding following the 1990 Democratic Revolution in Mongolia in the wake of the break-up of the USSR and the Revolution of 1989. Mongolia is a unique and relatively unexplored travel destination that offers a great combination of scenic natural features, a wide variety of untouched landscapes, nomadic life style and culture.

Travel organizations in Mongolia date back to half a century ago, but the private sector-based tourism is only twenty years old. With one of the world's lowest population densities, the vastness of the Mongolian grassland, desert, as well as the numerous mountains, rivers and lakes offer plenty of adventure.

About Mongolia

2015 Summer Group Tours

We organize several fixed date group trips to Mongolia including mountain biking, motorcycling, horse riding, trekking and cultural trips. You are welcome to join as an individual or if there are several friends together. This is a good way to travel in Mongolia if you want the companionship of others and to meet some interesting people.

Deglii Tsagaan Mountain


Dominated by lakes, deserts and huge mountains, Uvs province offers some of the most forbidding terrain in the country. This province of 102,000 inhabitants in the north-west of Mongolia, lies at the junction of the Altai and Khangai mountain chains and borders onto the Republic of Tuva in Russia.

Several mountain peaks reach over 4000 metres, including Deglee Tsagaan (4215 metres), Kharkhiraa (4116 metres) and Turgen (4245 metres).

Explanation:

The tours described on our website fall into one of the following categories:

We have a summer schedule of group tours which we plan to run from the start of the tourist season in June through to the end of September. These trips have fixed dates and are open to individuals or groups of friends. We need a minimum group size of 4 people to guarantee to run a trip, although sometimes we might do it with less people.

If you join a trip with a friend, you can share your tent or ger with them. If you are by yourself, you can either share with another single person in the group, or you can pay a modest single supplement and have a tent to yourself. At ger camps it is not always possible to get a single ger, it depends how busy they are, so you might have to share with another person in our group.

For groups of 4 or more people we can organise a private tailor made trip according to your dates and interests. The price depends on the number of people in your group; if there are more participants to share costs then the price per person will be lower. Trips can run during the tourist season between June and September.

If you are joining one of our scheduled tours and you want to stay longer in Mongolia, or if you want us to arrange anything for you in China or Russia, we can do that. It is easy for us to make extra hotel reservations for you, or if you are interested in doing something else we may be able to arrange it depending on what you want to do and how busy we are with other group tours. Train tickets to and from Ulaanbaatar and Beijing or Moscow, can be provided and if you want sightseeing tours, accommodation and transport or other services in China or Russia we can arrange everything using our experienced agents.

We provide the ground operations in Mongolia for tours arranged by several travel companies based in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, United States and Chile. We also provide the services for charities doing large-group fund-raising challenges in Mongolia. If your organisation would like to do tours in Mongolia, get in touch to discuss what we can organise for you.

What Our Customers Think

  • "We were very impressed with the organisation, variety of terrain and scenery, the food - delicious ! We think this just might be the best catered trip we have been on - the support, the bikes and their maintenance and the team in general. We will certainly be telling all our friends about how professional this trip was. We had a great time"

    Huw Williams (Wales)
  • We wish that we had more time to spend in Mongolia. What a fascinating place. Not only the Naadam Festival in Ulaanbaatar, but the many mini - Naadam Festivals we encountered in the countryside as well as the people and scenery were fantastic...

    Steve Sidebotham (Delaware, USA)
  • "We really enjoyed our time in Mongolia with the off-road experience and closeness to nature. The experience at the family ger was an emotional one. It struck a chord with me, somewhere deep inside. I could see the sense in their simple way of life, which I have not really been able to see in ours in the west"

    Joakim Hansson (Sweden)
  • "We really enjoyed all aspects of our trip. The itinerary was well organized. We felt like we had a good taste of the country. We especially liked meeting the nomadic family. The accommodations and food were all satisfying as well"

Why Us?

All the tours we do are to remote areas of Mongolia, far from good medical facilities. We are very conscious of this, which is why we give you plenty of advice before your tour about what to bring and how to train for a tour. We take our responsiblity for your safety seriously but clients must also remember that their behaviour, medicines, clothing and fitness will affect their enjoyment of the trip.

Of course, an adventure tour is by it's nature unpredictable and risky. But one can reduce the risks whilst maintaining the fun and excitement. We do this by providing good pre-tour advice, reliable vehicles, suitable equipment, and experienced staff.

We started running tours in Mongolia in 1998. Initially we did only mountain biking trips as that is our speciality, but later we branched out into hiking, horse riding and cultural trips. Since 2000 we have organized several charity fund-raising challenge events for UK charities including Macmillan, PDSA, the Girl Guides, Antony Nolan and others, often raising over £100,000 for the chosen charity.

In 2007 we bought our first fleet of Yamaha WR250F motorcycles and started doing motorbike tours. Since 2009 we have been replacing our Yamaha bikes with KTM 450EXC bikes and nowadays many of our tours are on motorbikes.

The tourist industry in Mongolia is still not well developed and because of the extremely harsh winter climate, tourism basically happens only during the brief summer: June through to the end of September. In fact, this is the main reason why Mongolian travel companies cannot compete on price with those countries in other parts of Asia where tourists can come all year round.

Therefore we aim to stretch out the tourist season by offering trips which are not so weather-dependent, for example train journeys and cultural tours using accommodation in guest houses which do not close down for the winter. This would directly support those small local businesses who struggle to survive from one tourist season to the next.
