Mongolia is a vast land of stark natural beauty, where green steppe meets stunning blue sky. This remote land of almost unimaginable wilderness is populated by traditional nomads who to this day still roam the great steppe lands grazing their animals and living with their families in felt gers, the traditional houses of the Mongolian people.

Genghis Khan, the great Mongolian warrior and ruler created the largest empire in the world and under his successor Ogedei Khan, the capital of the empire Kharakorum was founded. Today Animist and Buddhist traditions mix and timeworn Buddhist monasteries and stupas dot the countryside from the rolling steppe grasslands to the sands of the Gobi Desert. Ulaanbaatar, the country’s modern-day capital stands in stark contrast to ancient Kharakorum. It’s a mix of some of the best Mongolian and Soviet era architecture with a touch of modern capitalism thrown in, while its inhabitants provide a cultural melting pot of tradition and cuisine.

This Byroads trip in Mongolia is our most adventurous trip to date, traversing a large part of the country from Ulaanbaatar in the central north to the South Gobi Desert. It’s a fabulous trip designed not only to get you up close to its many historical monuments and natural wonders but also to discover the rich cultural identity and way of life of the country’s nomads.

Our journey is also timed to coincide with the start of the more localised and authentic Naadam festival, thus avoiding the throng of visitors who come during the more tourist orientated Naadam a few days later. Our final days are spent visiting the dunes of the South Gobi desert and the dramatic Eagle Valley before flying back to the capital.
