Should Mongolia Be Your Next Destination?

9:53 AM

Location: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

There's nothing more rewarding than escaping to a foreign land, somewhat locked away from the rest of the world and in a spot more distant than most humans will ever be. Of course with surreal sights of rolling green hills, great sand dunes and incredibly clear waterways. If you've already guessed it, well yes, we were talking about one of the world's last frontiers, Passport Out welcomes you to Mongolia!

Dreaming of those we've mentioned above? Well honey, Should your next destination be Mongolia?


If you're into...

...Exploring The Unknown

Mongolia is known to be one of the world's largest landlocked countries with much of its area covered with grassy Steppe, Mountains to the North and the Gobi Desert to the South and many overland roads are only made out of gravel or simple tire-made tracks. Who knows where the unpaved roads might take you?

...Experiencing The Unique

Staying at a traditional Ger dwelling for a few days, trying out the famous Airag (fermented mare's milk) with the locals and riding a Mori (Mongolian Horse) till sun-down doesn't sound so bad, right?

...Being One With Nature

Hiking the Khentii Mountains in Terelj (near Genghis Khan's birthplace), walking along the shores of the remnants of a saline sea at Uvs Lake or riding a camel at the vast dunes of the Gobi Desert, what more could you ask for?

...Mingling With The Locals

Placing your bet at the local Naadam Festival (Festival of Three Games), Meeting a mongolian wrestler at a Khapsagay (Mongolian Wrestling) or be a part of the audience at the Tsam Dance Festival. Care to participate in one of them?

...Be At Peace At A Luxury Retreat by the Mountains

Escaping 70km North of the capital, Ulaanbaatar and into the carefully protected lands of the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park lies the luxurious Terelj Hotel. Offering one of the best views of the park, there's no way you can say no to this. Are you up for some luxury pampering?


So tell me, is Mongolia your next destination?
