Mongolia is home to some of the best natural landscapes and awe-inspiring culture and lifestyle, features that tourists should take due advantage of. Although the country is not as commonly visited as other countries worldwide, its government is taking steps to help boost the tourism industry.

Due to the predominant scenic natural features in Mongolia, most of its tourist activities include hiking/trekking, climbing, horse riding, bird watching, rafting, camel riding, and motorcycle tours. There’s a considerable focus on ecology and wildlife, and a target location is the Gobi Desert. The desert is famous for its numerous native animal species and the presence of fossilized dinosaur eggs and bones.

Other points of attraction are Mongolia’s lakes, the Four Holy Peaks in Ulaanbaatar, and the Gobi Gurvansaikhan National Park, located in the Umnugobi.

The major event celebrated in Mongolia is the famous Naadam, held from July 11 to July 13 to celebrate the Democratic Revolution. Three traditional sports are played during this festival: long-distance horse racing, Mongolian wrestling, and archery. Other important events are Eagle festival, Camel festival, and Nowruz.

As Mongolia is a country full of nature and natural things, it’s no surprise that its cuisine predominantly consists of meat and dairy products. Some of the dishes that tourists should look out for are: 

  • Khorkhog (Mongolian Barbeque)
  • Buuz (a kind of dumpling)
  • Boodog (a traditional roast)
  • Budaatai khuurga (Mongolian fried rice cooked with shredded beef or lamb)
  • Airag – drink made from fermented milk of mare.
