About Mongolia

For those who have never been to Mongolia, it conjures an image of a remote corner of the world, well known for its sparse population, nomadic heritage, Gobi Desert, and endless steppe.

Mongolia is unique for its diverse natural zones, vast landscapes and comparatively untouched and open land. The country contains large diverse ecosystems ranging from the comparatively barren high snowcapped mountains of Altai in the west, the Siberian taiga forest and lush green meadows and wide river valleys of the North, mountain steppe and steppe grassland regions in central and eastern Mongolia and arid desert region of the Gobi in the south. Each region hosts diverse wildlife adapted to the harsh climate and long winters of this land.

Some things which make Mongolia stand out from the rest of the world are the vistas and emptiness of the land. With 1.564.100 square kilometers of territory and a population of around 3 million, Mongolia is the most sparsely populated country in the world. More than 50% of the population resides in the capital city, Ulaanbaatar, the rest of the country is highly underdeveloped by humans and remains wild.

In an overpopulated, crowded world, it’s extremely difficult to find a place like this. If you want a get away from the fast-paced and overcrowded urban life of the modern world, Mongolia is a great destination that offers peace and opportunity to see what the earth looked like in a pre-human era.
