Wide open sky; vast plains shadowed by mountains looming
in the horizon; a yurt-dwelling nomadic people famous for their
ancient tradition and unsurpassed hospitality. Venture into
Mongolia by rail, and tap into your inner explorer. The untouched
steppes here are still home to nomads, whose lifestyle remains
nearly unchanged after centuries, much like the land itself.
Ulaanbaatar, the country's capital, is the whirlwind at the center
of the country's vast calm. Home to a growing youth culture, a
recent industrial boom, and many museums and Buddhist monasteries,
the city is Mongolia's urban centre. However, whether you find
yourself among nomads in the country's remote corners, cutting
through countryside aboard a luxury train, or getting cocktails at
a bar in downtown Ulaanbaatar, you'll be treated to the best
hospitality on the planet. While the Mongolian landscape may be
rugged, its people are anything but.
