Journey in the Land of Nomads

Destination Explanation

Mongolia is a landlocked country located in East and Central Asia. It has a population of around 3.3 million people and covers an area of approximately 1.6 million square kilometers, making it one of the world’s largest countries in terms of land area. Mongolia shares borders with Russia to the north and China to the south, east, and west.

Mongolia has a rich history that dates back to the Mongol Empire, which was founded in the 13th century by Genghis Khan. The empire eventually became one of the largest in history, stretching from Eastern Europe to the Pacific Ocean. 

Today, Mongolia is a parliamentary republic with a president as its head of state.

The country is known for its vast and rugged landscapes, including the Gobi Desert, which covers much of southern Mongolia. The country is also home to numerous natural wonders, including the Altai Mountains, Lake Khövsgöl, and the Orkhon Valley, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Mongolia is a country with a rich nomadic culture, and many of its people still live a traditional lifestyle, herding livestock across the country’s vast grasslands. The traditional Mongolian dwelling, called a ger, is a portable, round tent made of felt and wood that is easy to assemble and disassemble, making it ideal for a nomadic lifestyle.
In recent years, Mongolia’s economy has been growing rapidly, driven in part by the mining industry, which produces large quantities of coal, copper, and gold. However, the country faces challenges such as a harsh climate, limited infrastructure, and a small population.
