Welcome to Mongolia
For sure, your first view of Mongolia will be from the plane or, if you arrive by train, through the window of your train compartment. No matter from which direction you come to Mongolia, you will always be welcomed first by the endless expanse of the landscape. If you want to experience the originality of Mongolia, you have to go out to the countryside. Into the gently undulating infinity of the grass steppe. Into the flat sand universe of the Gobi desert. In the bizarre cliff cosmos of the Altai mountains or in the sea of grass, the steppe in Eastern Mongolia.
Mongolia has a rich culture and history. For centuries, the people living here in the barren and harsh landscape and have adapted to the harsh conditions and it spawned a unique culture. The does not provide the individual in the foreground, but the community. Share and cooperation, instead of "mine," and against each other. The central point of the nomadic society is the yurt. These proven round tents made of felt, stand out the same huge mushrooms of the endless green of the landscape. They give protection and also invite every stranger you to linger.
The country on the brink of new beginnings to modern times. Only a few years you can travel to Mongolia without big problems. This seclusion of any external influences that still preserves the country largely in its original state. Time has come, gets another dimension and is used for things that appear to the host as marginal.
This is Mongolia
Mongolia is not for mass tourism. The local conditions are still quite simple and require the host a high willingness to admit satisfied with the simple things, also the journey season is very short. The country has so much to offer. Especially sports fans as riders, climber, boaters, hikers and nature lovers are fully come here at your cost.
And when I go now the best in this country? To answer this question correctly will depend on in which region you would like to Travelling. The Gobi is best to visit in the spring, then when the desert "blooms", end of May. The north and the Altai Mountains is the best time in August. I myself am like the beginning / end of September in the country en route. Then the nights get quite cool, the days still very warm and the whole country is full of autumnal ripe, in anticipation of the winter.
