Plan an amazing trip to Mongolia

A journey through Mongolia is an initiatory experience that will mark you forever, whether it is a camel ride through the desert, an excursion across the lunar landscape of the steppes or the taiga, trekking through the mountains or a night in yurt warmed by a nomad campfire. Not only are the natural landscapes magnificent and varied, the cultural heritage and ancestral traditions are rich. You will never regret discovering central Asia in the footsteps of Genghis Khan. Mongolia, located between Russia to the north and China to the south, covers 605,000 square miles with a population of fewer than 3 million inhabitants, making it one of the lowest population densities in the world (it does have 2.6 million horses though!) A third of its inhabitants live in the capital, Ulaanbaatar. Nomads still form the majority: breeding horses, sheep, goats cattle and camels. Little land is cultivated, being largely desert or mountainous. The average altitude is 1,580 metres with the Altai region to the west reaching 4,375 metres.
