Mongolia gives tourists the opportunity to get acquainted with cultural and natural resources. Ancient history, unique landscape and traditions will make even a short trip memorable. The country offers its guests several recreation options: ecological, active, cultural.
Nature is one of the main treasures of the country. 22 national parks will allow you to see a variety of landscapes and fauna. Vegetation varies from the larch taiga to the desert, many of whose inhabitants are listed in the Red Book. Where there is a rich and diverse nature, there is also active recreation — hiking, horseback riding, auto tourism. Hunting and fishing are popular leisure activities that have long been mastered by foreign guests of the country. Not so long ago, there was an opportunity to visit the first, so far the only, modern ski resort that opened near the capital.
The culture of Mongolia is centuries—old and is represented both by archaeological monuments – rock paintings and ruins of ancient settlements, and medieval Buddhist monasteries and palaces. Modern attractions are museums, theaters, parks, shopping centers of the capital of the country. Many holidays and festivals are held in the city, some of them with a bright national flavor. Mongolia’s climate cannot be called harsh, but frosts in winter and heat in summer are mandatory. The best time to travel is the end of August or the beginning of September, although the whole summer provides quite comfortable conditions for exploring the country.
