Is this the destination for you?

Go lose your bearings and discover the nomads or the Tsaatsan people during your trip to Mongolia ! However, avoid winter and its -40°C nights...

You should go if

  • You will love discovering new cultures (shamans, nomads...)
  • You're looking to immerse yourself in totally different and unfamiliar landscapes: the steppes, mountains, flocks...
  • You dream of going off to meet the last nomadic people living in yurts
  • You want to revitalise yourself and you're not afraid to challenge yourself
  • You dream of crossing the Gobi desert in a 4x4
  • You're looking for an extraordinary human experience, and wish to fall in love with the country upon leaving

You shouldn't go if

  • You fear the cold: in the winter the temperature can drop to -50°C on the coldest nights!
  • You love countries where it is easy to organise everything by yourself
  • Don't be surprised or exasperated: many Mongols don't speak a word of English
  • You prefer to visit towns: Oulan Baator is not very safe and doesn't have any great attractions
  • Hygiene is REALLY important to you: living with nomads means forgetting about showers for the duration of your stay!
  • Solitude and large spaces terrify you
