If you’re looking for a truly unspoilt destination, Mongolia is ripe for exploration. This sparsely populated, landlocked nation of such rugged beauty makes for an intimate travel experience bursting with authenticity – from sleeping in a ger (traditional domed tent) to camel trekking through the desert.
Wide open spaces, local herders, yaks grazing on mountain plains: it’s an intriguing wilderness. Mongolia’s vast steppe is home to one of the world’s last surviving nomadic cultures. Nearly half the country’s population squeeze into the capital Ulaanbaatar to make a concrete jungle, but in southern Mongolia, the Gobi Desert’s endless expanse captures a remote grandeur that most travellers can only dream of.
