Tour Overview

The Essence of Mongolia is an activity-packed tour into central Mongolia. Visit the Khogno Khan Reserve, and the dunes at Elsen Tasarkhai before venturing to the Khustai National park to see the wild Takhi horses and plenty of other wildlife. This condensed trip lets you experience as much of Mongolia as possible in a short time of four days. Overnight, stay at authentic guest gers next to local nomadic families and in a comfortable ger camp for one night. Learn about your hosts’ culture and traditions, socialize with them, ride horses and Bactrian camels, hike, and visit hilltop temples. This all-encompassing trip contains most of what Mongolia offers, including must-do’s and must-sees, and is perfect for those with limited time in the country.

icon Day 1 : Gandan Monastery - Gurvanbulag - Nomad Family
Location:

  Ulaanbaatar, Gurvanbulag Community Travel


Accommodation:

  Homestay, HomestayGuest ger alongside the nomad family


Accommodation Name:

  Ger (Yurt)


Meals Included:

  Lunch, Dinner



After meeting your guide at 09:00 am in your hotel or another Ulaanbaatar location of your choice board the vehicle for a morning visit at the Gandan Monastery in the western part of the city. Take the guided tour of the temples and see the monks chanting. Then head west to the northern part of the Gobi onto Gurvanbulag, where you will be staying at a guest ger alongside a nomadic family. The drive is mostly on a paved road and should take 4 hours (280km). On arrival, enter the family ger and experience nomadic hospitality — sample milk tea, homemade yoghurts, and curds, learning about the nomadic way of life and your hosts’ traditions. In the afternoon, if you are up for it, ride a horse to the nearby sand dunes — or you can walk if you prefer. The distance is not long, just 3km each way. In the evening enjoy a traditional nomadic meal of Buuz (steamed dumplings) or khorkhog (mutton seared with hot stones) — you can also help with cooking if you want.

icon Day 2 : Khogno Khan — Uvgun Temple — Elsen Tasarkhai Dunes — Camel Riding
Location:

  Elsen Tasarkhai


Accommodation:

  Homestay, HomestayHomestayGuest ger alongside the nomad family


Accommodation Name:

  Ger (Yurt)


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


After a home-cooked breakfast say goodbye to your hosts and drive for 1.5 hours (55km) to Khogno Khaan nature reserve — the site of the Uvgun temple complex. Khogno Khan is an area where taiga meets rolling steppes and north Gobi’s sand dunes. Hike a short distance to the Uvgun temples which were built in the 17th century by Zanabazar but destroyed in the 1930s during communist purges. After coming down to the vehicle drive 25km to the Elsen Tasarkhai sand dunes, where you will stay next to a family of camel herders. Settle into your ger and once your camels are ready, mount up for a 1-hour Bactrian ride into the dunes, taking time for photographs from the camelback. In the evening return to your hosts and enjoy a home-cooked dinner, socializing in the evening over fermented mare’s milk with the family.

icon Day 3 : Khustai National Park — Wild Takhi Horses — Hiking — Ulaanbaatar
Location:

  Hustain Nuruu - Biosphere Reserve - Hustai National Park, Ulaanbaatar


Accommodation:

  Resort


Accommodation Name:

  Khustai Camp


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch


After a leisurely breakfast, board the vehicle for the journey back east to Khustai. On arrival visit the park’s information centre where you will learn about the plethora of wildlife roaming the National Park. Have lunch in a local ger camp located at the park’s entrance, then venture into the park to see the wild Takhi horses. Your guide will be in contact with the park rangers who will relay the animal's location — so you have high chances of seeing them close. You can also venture deeper into the park on foot if you wish, perhaps to track wild deer or foxes — Khustai offers wonderful wilderness hiking opportunities. In the late afternoon return to the vehicle and drive back for two hours (110km) to Ulaanbaatar, where you will be dropped at a location of your choice.

Magnificent Mongolia

Our family of 5 (daughters 12, 10 and 5yrs) booked our Mongolia Tour whilst we were in Beijing en route to UB and to Moscow.

The email response from Simon was prompt and professional.

We had a few hiccups with our accommodation booking but Simon did his best to sort it out and all was better than expected in the end.

From our stay in UB to the National Park lodge and Hustai Camp Ger, we were very happy with the entire itinerary.

Even though we travelled through in winter and many lodges and camps were closed we still thoroughly enjoyed our time.

It was less crowded and equally as beautiful.

Food was fantastic everywhere we visited, particularly with the Nomadic families.

Our guide and driver were fantastic could not have asked for better.

Bayasa was passionate and knowledgeable and Oghi was the safest and calm driver.

We loved Mongolia and our time there and will consider coming back on our way home and will book again with Tour Mongolia.

This was a wonderful short trip outside of the City of Ulaanbaatar.

i was blessed to have a great tour guide whose compassion and friendship made it all the while.

My first-time experience on quadcopter over the Chinggis Khan moment was electrifying, and my dream of riding on the back of a double hump camel was amazing.

But what's more splendid was enjoying an overnight sleep in a Ger in the middle of nowhere with a view of the milky way is breathtaking.

And of course, the native food by a local family whose hospitality was outstanding is worth more than the cost of the trip.

As the saying goes, "it's our you're received and welcomed during a trip by a host that makes all the difference in the world.

" I was made to feel like a king.

Our family would like to thank Tour Mongolia for an amazing adventure we will never forget.

Our tour guide, Tebo, was outstanding and worked very hard to make our trip the best it could be.

He was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and fun and we appreciated his company as well as the amazing scenery, horse riding, excellent (and plentiful) food, and experiences provided to us including the awe-inspiring Golden Eagle Festival and a stay with a Kazakh family.

Thanks also to the fantastic cook in Ulgii - and drivers - who looked after us as well.

We feel privileged and humbled to have had a chance to witness this beautiful country and culture.

Northern India

India

What do you love most about Northern India?

"From deserts and mountain ranges to ancient forts and step wells - Northern India is incredibly diverse. "

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"The ancient monuments are wonders of architecture and colour. You'll feel like you're in Asia, the Middle East and even Europe at times. "

Favourite time of year to visit Northern India

"Winter! During summer temperatures get very high so winter (Nov - Feb) is much more comfortable. But don't worry! You'll still enjoy sunny hot weather, it just won't be unbearable. "

@lizaliddy's Top Tips

"Don't be afraid to get amongst it! India is so fun and energetic. There's always a lot going on - which can be overwhelming. But if you're open to it, it can be a really cool experience. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Northern India

Angkor Wat

Cambodia

What do you love most about Angkor Wat?

"You'll feel mesmerised by the ancient designs and each temple has a unique story. I loved exploring the forests to get to each temple. It felt like an adventure on its own. "

Benefits of a tour guide for Angkor Wat

Must pack items for Angkor Wat

"Wear appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. You'll spend a lot of time walking so wear comfortable shoes. Bring bug repellant and sunscreen!"

@tiffanyswindow's Top Tips

"Spend at least 2 days exploring! If you're not on a tour, rent a motorbike and have the freedom to explore on your own. Be careful with your money, as they don't accept any torn or ripped cash."

Where can you get tickets if you're not on a tour?

"You can purchase at the Angkor pass ticket counters. Book it a day before, have it delivered to your hotel and skip the line! Or, book online on the Angkor Enterprise website and show your ticket."

Are there restaurants nearby?

"You'll find shops at every temple, if not, then nearby. They sell drinks or snacks, and clothing (traditional clothes for photos). There is a place at Angkor Wat for sit-down food and drinks."
