Outer Mongolia lies at the heart of Asia, on the balance between the ‘East’ of China, and the vast wilderness of Siberia in Russia. This huge, sparsely populated land encompasses a fabulous array of pristine landscapes and a nomadic people whose lives are in many ways unchanged from the days of Genghis Khan and the mighty Mongol Empire.


Where nomadic herders still depend on nature for survival, you’ll find priceless luxuries like open space, untouched wilderness, and pristine air and water in abundance, each cherished by the Mongolian people. And as the 19th largest country in the world, Mongolia’s considerable size means an enormous variety of landscapes, and plenty of room for guests. Awesome expanses of rolling steppe, home to Mongolia's famous horses and herdsmen, meet high glacial mountains, impenetrable forests and deep crystal lakes. Today Mongolia remains a place of natural and cultural diversity and adventure.
