Mongolia is a versatile destination that has everything from cultural to outdoor activities. Its extreme climate and unpredictable weather makes it impossible to mark off one season over the other. Each of them has its unique characteristics and colors. Whether you decide to travel in spring, summer, autumn or winter we would suggest you to try a range of experiences.
For those traveling in July or October, the Naadam and Golden Eagle Festivals are a must. And who said winter can be boring? Not in Mongolia! Tsagaan Sar, the festival of the Lunar New Year is celebrated in or around January or February depending on the Mongolian lunar calendar. It is a time when Mongolians celebrate in the midst of a cold, long winter, looking forward to the spring. It is also a time when tourists learn and enjoy many interesting facets of Mongolian culture.
Dog sledding is one of the best ways to discover Mongolia in winter, to approach wild animals and live an incredible adventure in the heart of Mongolian winter. The most of the trip, is the link you will bound with your dogs. Don’t be shy to cheer them up or even pad them. They’ll give it to you back. Here is an opportunity to meet with the nomads and relax in a warm yurt at night, around a traditional meal.
Horseback and camel riding can be experienced all over the country during all four seasons. Age and gender do not matter, and do not require any experience. While visiting Hustai National Park there is a chance to witness world’s one and only wild takhi horses (Przewalski) living in the wild.
There are a lot of reasons to feel nostalgic during autumn season. The grass rustles under the feet, yesterday's dark green trees turn yellow... If you love fishing (a fishing permit is required), then you'll get excited about Khuvsgul lake. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Ice Festival with traditional games and races over two days in Khuvsgul. Each March, the nomadic reindeer herders, Tsaatan, from the north, join local residents to celebrate this big event.
Hiking, climbing, meditation in the absolutely silence is one of the highlights of your stay in Mongolia. If you want to experience local culture and know more about the history and religion there are a lot of museums, Buddhist temples and monasteries to explore all over the country.
In summer, spend a night with the nomadic family under the open sky stargazing or catch a glimpse of the sun rising over the sand dunes. Needless to say it will be one of the most gratifying experiences of your trip.
