Mongolia was sealed off from the world for most of the 20th century, and the mention of the name conjures up preconceptions of remoteness and isolation. But now, Mongolia has opened up to the world, its inhabitants are travelling the globe and visitors are flocking to escape the modernity of everyday life. It is still a developing country with a basic infrastructure but this is all part of its alluring charm. Mongolia is vast, remote, but truly naturally beautiful.

Mongolians are aware of the unique natural beauty of their country, with rolling countryside, huge steppes, rugged mountains, pristine lakes, and a plethora of wildlife and livestock; it’s an amazing wilderness experience. Their nomadic culture is also famous and most visitors will sleep in Gers (traditional felt yurts), and simply get back to nature. The friendly welcome they will receive may not be so famous, but it is second to none, and in today’s world, it is refreshing to meet locals who are willing to open their doors and hearts to complete strangers.

While nomadic Mongols opt for the simple life, the locals in Ulaanbaatar are embracing modernity with every stride. The capital is changing at a breakneck speed and many Mongolians have embraced the global economy, capitalism, and consumerism into their everyday lives. Mongolia is keen to be part of the global community; by visiting you are contributing to the remarkable developments in this extraordinary land.
