Central Mongolia

Overview

Getting to the heartland of Mongolia may involve a bit of perseverance and time, but visitors who make the effort are rewarded with rolling hills, mountains, and sand dunes that stretch to the horizon, dotted with traditional yurts.

Watch as the wide open steppes unfold before your very eyes. Visit the ancient capital of Kharkhorin or go on safari in search of the wild horses known as Przewalski, once believed to be extinct. Experience the serene calm of Erdene Zuu monastery or ride camels across the dunes at Elsen Tasakhai. Touch the northern edge of the Gobi Desert and mingle with local nomadic families who will welcome you into their daily lives. This is a land of magic and light, a mysterious heartland that, once seen by the eyes, will immediately be remembered by the heart.
