Marco Polo and Genghis Khan are two of the names that evoke some of the mystery and grandeur of what is now Mongolia and beyond. Mongolia itself was only opened to the Western world since the fall of communism in the 1990s, and since then the “Land of Blue Sky” has remained a unique and very remote destination of stunning landscapes for the adventurous traveler. Beginning in the capital of Ulaanbaatar, we'll make a circuit around these amazing landscapes and have plenty of time to visit centuries-old Buddhist monasteries, hot springs, nomadic families, herds of camels and horses, and dinosaur stomping-grounds, all the while, staying in the traditional felt tents of the nomads, known as “gers”. Join us on an odyssey through one of the most rewarding and best-kept secrets in the world of adventure travel.
