Mongolia is a land of vast deserts, soaring mountains, and rich culture. With a history that dates back over 800 years, the country has plenty of unique experiences to offer to visitors who travel to Mongolia. From the stunning Gobi Desert to the bustling capital of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia has something for everyone.

Getting to Mongolia is relatively easy, with direct flights available from major cities such as Beijing, Moscow, and Seoul. Once you arrive, you will find a country that is vastly different from the one you left behind. Mongolia is known for its nomadic culture, and visitors can experience this way of life by staying in a traditional ger, a portable felt-covered dwelling that is still used by many Mongolian families today.

One of the must-see destinations for visitors to Mongolia is the Gobi Desert. This vast and desolate landscape stretches for over 500,000 square miles and is home to a variety of unique flora and fauna. Visitors can explore the desert by camel, taking in the stunning sand dunes and rock formations that make this area so special.

Another highlight of a trip to Mongolia is the chance to see the country's wildlife up close. Mongolia is home to the elusive snow leopard, as well as the wild horses known as Przewalski's horses. Visitors can also see yaks, camels, and other animals that are integral to the nomadic way of life.

For those interested in history and culture, Mongolia has plenty to offer as well. The capital city of Ulaanbaatar is home to several museums, including the National Museum of Mongolia, which showcases the country's rich history and culture. Visitors can also explore ancient monasteries and temples, such as the Gandan Monastery, which dates back to the 19th century.

One thing to keep in mind when planning a trip to Mongolia is the weather. The country experiences extreme temperatures, with hot summers and cold winters. The best time to visit is during the summer months, when temperatures are mild and the landscape is lush and green.

In conclusion, a trip to Mongolia is an unforgettable experience. From the stunning natural landscapes to the rich culture and history, there is something for everyone in this unique and beautiful country. Whether you are interested in adventure, culture, or wildlife, Mongolia has it all. So why not start planning your trip today?

Tour: Balkan Kaleidoscope
I just returned from a 2 week tour of the Balkans and thoroughly enjoyed the experience offered by Penguin. Communication leading up to the tour was exceptional. Our itinerary was fast paced and comprehensive and the sights were spectacular. Accommodations were were clean and amenities sufficient for the price paid for the tour. The tour leader, bus driver and the local guides were efficient friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Penguin travel, especially for off the beaten path destinations.


Tour: Iraqi Kurdistan
My recent trip in Iraq organized by Penguin was excellent from start to end. Both Penguin tour guide (Nessi) and the local guide (Fahad) managed all topics efficiently and facilitated an amazing experience for the group. Now I dream about visiting the Northern part of the country, too.


Tour: Socotra Island Adventures (Yemen)
Thanks for everything in terms of your work and help with this trip to Yemen. It was an amazing experience - one I would recommend to almost anyone. By the numbers of people who travelled to the island, it is only going to get more exposure. The local company was very good - so you can have no problems with them at all. I was really lucky though - there were only 2 of us on the trip - and it was a really nice experience. I will continue to work with Penguin in getting ideas for great places to travel.
