Mongolia - Things To Do In Mongolia - Travel Advice

Mongolia is a country located between two giant neighbors, the Russian Federation and China. It was great during the period of Mongol conquest under Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan, as to the twentieth century, Mongolia had a size three times larger than today, including much of Siberia and Inner Mongolia, now controlled by China.

Mongol People - As there is no one-child policy like China, Mongolian women have children they want and usually stop when they have brought the world an equal number of daughters and sons (2 and 2 or 3 and 3). The men are loving and attentive to children, although most of the work in the lives of pastoralists falls on women: preparing food, keep clean the chairs, the ger, clothing, pots, stove, go for firewood or dried dung to feed the stove, fetch water.

At an early age, around its eighth year of school at 15 years, and children begin to work, but there is enormous respect from adults in the games (and the time to play) in children and young people. In full summer, now that the sun sets at 10 pm,

Mongol Sports Festival - A sports festival that is celebrated throughout Mongolia in July, but the best known is the capital, Ulan Bator. Only lasts three days but it seems that the whole nation lives half the year preparing and commenting on how the other half was.

It consists of three tests, horse racing, wrestling and archery.

Horse race - Horse races are crazy. They travel at top speed between 15 and 30 miles by category, which depends on the age of the horse. The jockeys are children between 5 and 13 years and most are bareback, without a saddle, no stirrups, barefoot ... The winning horses, riders who do not, they become national stars.
Today tourism is opening up looking for new destinations, some crowded and offer the taste of adventure and strong cultural component and landscape.

Places To Visit In Mongolia 

Ulan Bator - If Mongolia is the Ying, unspoiled nature in its pure state, Ulan Bator fits very well to his yang. A huge commercial city, heavy traffic, night life and bohemian counter-culture, the capital of Mongolia also raises shock excitation.

Ever-expanding suburban ger (yurt) surround the city, offering an air front to back Soviet urban planning. Ulan Bator, ever-changing may be the biggest surprise of his adventure in Mongolia.

Tov - Located on a blanket of pines, planted rocks and slopes of the Khan Khentii mountain range, it is hard to believe that Ulan Bator, with its one million citizens, is only a mountain away. The proximity of the capital Töv has in no way prejudiced its pristine landscape.

In Töv aimag has restored some beautiful monasteries as Mandshir Khiid Bogdkhan National Park Uul. It also has some curious places, such as the oversized statue of Chinggis Khaan Nalaikh about the possibility of lunch in a model of a battlefield or thirteenth century Mongol able to sleep in the oddly named Field of Dresden. A large part of the aimag north is occupied by National Parks Gorkhi-Terelj, Khentii Khan Uul Bogdkhan. The southern half of the desert steppe of Töv is soft and most travelers pass quickly on its way to the aimag Dundgov.

Khustain Nuruu National Park - Also known as the Cordillera Khustain Nuruu, this park was established in 1993 and is about 100 kilometers southwest of Ulan Bator. The reserve protects 620 hectares of wild horse of Mongolia, takhi, and the steppe, as well as forests in the vicinity. The park is administered by the National Park Hustai Trust, which is supported by the Dutch government of Mongolia and the Association for the Conservation of Nature and the Environment (MACN).

Gobi Desert - The notion of the Gobi Desert seen as a wasteland of deserted sand dunes has been developed only in the mind of a few romantic. While it is a rather bleak in the world, the Gobi Desert is also very diverse, with ice-filled canyons, rock formations and green oasis. The dunes are really rare, they cover only 3% of the Gobi. As expected, a trip to the Gobi Desert is not comfortable or easy. Between the summer heat, winter cold, dust storms, poor infrastructure and lack of water, this is one of the harshest landscapes on the planet. A telegram from Mildred, an Englishwoman who crossed it in the early 1920, said: "Surely only a fool would cross the Gobi desert." Somehow, the Mongolians have made their home in this inhospitable land with scattered camps that still dot the plains, villages and occasional dilapidated monasteries in ruins. A look at the ground show an ancient past in the Gobi, then we can find a lot of fossils. The provinces or aimags of the Gobi are Bayankhongor, Dornogov, Dundgov, Altai and Ömnögov, and small-scale goat herder and camel, and increasingly, tourism.

Aerial demon, more expensive even than in Europe. In the area closest to the edge of the wilderness, and therefore their departure, there are lots of camps where they can practice adventure sports and various activities, "surfing" on the sand, camel riding, rent bikes, quads and ATVs, horseback riding, jumping off a couple of zip lines, getting into a giant transparent ball, etc.. Each activity can be paid separately and the price ranges between 4 € and 18 € or buy a pack for about 30 €.
