Are you venturing to the ‘Land of the Blue Skies'? Good choice. With 250 days a year of sunshine, Mongolia is a supremely diverse nation, with some of the most extreme conditions you'll find anywhere on the planet. Mongolia is one of the world's last surviving nomadic communities, landlocked between China and Russia. Whether you're wanting to experience the herdsmen of the sprawling Gobi desert, or the much-changed nature of the modernised capital, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia offers simplicity and serenity for all types of traveller. There's so much to see and do in one of the highest Asian countries, from jeep tours and camel rides to bird-watching and mountain biking. There's never been a better time to go and experience Mongolia before the rest of the world realises just how spectacular it is!
