Known as the “Land of the Eternal Blue Sky”, Mongolia is a fascinating country from north to south. Located between Russia and China, this huge country is the second-largest landlocked country in the world. Much of its area is covered by grassy steppe, with mountains to the north and west and the Gobi Desert to the south.
Since it is a landlocked country, Mongolia doesn’t have seas to moderate its temperature. This fact gives Mongolia one of its most significant characteristic: the temperature amplitude. Most of the country is very hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter. Temperatures in Mongolia can range between 40° C in hot summer days to -40 °C in cold winter nights.
Ulaanbataar is the capital and largest city in Mongolia. Almost 45% of the Mongolian population live in the capital. What is special about this country is that 30% of the population is nomadic. Don’t miss the chance to trek around Mongolia and get to know their unique way of life and culture. From the Gobi Desert to the Orkhon Valley, you will fall in love with this magical country and its people.
