Destination Information for Mongolia

Mongolia, sandwiched between China and Russia, is one of the last remaining places on earth where nomadic life is still a popular way of living. The country has the lowest population density of all independent countries in the world, and the vastness and emptiness drives much of Mongolia’s appeal to visitors.

Despite the large areas of apparent ‘nothingness’, there is plenty to keep tourists busy, from adventure sports to discovering the fascinating history and culture of the country. The country is famed for being the birthplace of the legendary Genghis Khan.

Ulaanbaatar is the capital of Mongolia and where most travellers enter the country. Surprisingly, when compared to the rest of Mongolia, this is a modern city with five-star hotels, fabulous shopping malls, world-class dining and towering skyscrapers.

The internet is available throughout the country, even in the tiniest villages, showing that although Mongolia has preserved its ancient and traditional way of living in many ways, it is still a rapidly developing country.

If you’re looking for an unusual destination where you can try your hand at camel riding, mountain biking, birdwatching, discover city life, explore ruined temples and camp in an unspoilt natural wilderness, Mongolia may be the new surprise location on your wish-list.

Additional Health Risks Information for Mongolia

If you’re travelling to Mongolia, be aware of the comparative wealth of any foreigner as opposed to a Mongolian National, and ensure that you carry your valuables and personal possessions safely. Petty theft is common, and in busy areas you may be hassled by groups of teenagers or children asking for money. Take extra care when using public transport, and avoid walking alone or late at night.

Travelling around within Mongolia can be tricky: there is not a well-developed road network, with roads often being basic dust tracks. It’s best to travel with an experienced guide who knows the area and terrain. There are long distances between towns and villages. The extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, that are experienced in Mongolia can cause difficulties when travelling, so ensure you take plenty of food, water and appropriate clothing. Travellers may be at risk of tick borne Encephalitis during April to November. The risk is highest when hiking or camping in forested areas, consult a travel clinic before your trip.

The standard of Mongolian healthcare varies. Even in the capital Ulaanbaatar there is generally only basic treatment available. Make sure you have adequate travel insurance in place to cover evacuation or repatriation if necessary.
