Travel to Mongolia to discover a remote pocket of Asia
Travel to Mongolia and experience the raw beauty and tradition of this remote region. Hidden from the world for many years, it is hard to imagine that this secluded country once created the largest land empire ever known. Unmatched geographical diversity, pristine grasslands, crumbling ruins and roaming herdsmen riding tough Mongolian horses - see it all on this journey through a land that time forgot.
What's included in this trip
Wild Mongolia SummaryAdd to Shortlist
This surprising city combines tradition with modern day in a Soviet-style framework. Ulaanbaatar may look grey, but the city's inherent spirit and its colourful people make this a city to remember.
Sitting serenely in the Iven Valley, the Amarbayasgalant Monastery was built in the early 1700s and was built in honour of Zanabazar.
Flowing through Russia and Mongolia, and into Lake Baikal, the Selenge River is around 992 km long and is Mongolia's largest river.
Often described as Mongolia's most scenic destination, Lake Khovsgol's blue waters are surrounded by dense forests and rolling grasslands, which are often peppered with wildflowers.
Calm blue waters, reflecting clouds and endless grasslands surround the beautiful Terkhiin Tsagaan Lake, which is home to numerous species of birds.
Tsenkher is renowned for its delightful hot springs and is set amongst remote yet beautiful open scenery.
Built by Genghis Khan in the 13th century, the ancient capital of Karakorum houses Mongolia's first Buddhist centre and impressive ruins. The Khogno Khan Mountains were once the site of a battle between two Buddhist sects but is now home to wild animals, sand dunes, forests and craggy outcrops.
Called UB by locals, the endearing Ulaanbaatar is surrounded by green hills and is a curious mix of Soviet buildings and ger districts.
