Traveling in Mongolia (Mongolia) – reviews

Review about Travelling in Mongolia (Mongolia)

Here I am back to my reviews, after a little break for work and travel, I again want to share with you, my impressions, of yet another amazing and exotic country of Mongolia. It is perhaps one of the most.

A mysterious and original country.

My road trip with my family started with crossing the border at Kyahta-Altanbulag checkpoint. It took us about an hour and a half. We spent about 1600 rubles for taxes and car insurance. Then we went to Sukhbaatar and along the only road through.

The festival of hunters with golden eagles will not leave you without impressions and photos.

The acquaintance with the natural medievalism, excellent photos, wonderful cheap meat cuisine, new acquaintances

I was introduced to the beauty of western Mongolia in 2019. Here, near the town of Bayan-Ulagey, across the Hovdgol River, a festival of hunters with golden eagles – the berkutchi – takes place every fall. But hunting with a golden eagle is not a Mongolian tradition. It is.

Interesting

In early spring of 2015 I was on a business trip to Mongolia. I still have a lot of impressions. I will try to translate them into a review on this site. In this review I will tell you about the capital of Mongolia, the city of Ulan Bator. Ulan Bator.

What an extraordinary country.

And this is Ulaanbaatar! We are greeted by the Chingiz Khan International Airport. My trip to this city was in February! For reference, Ulan Bator is the coldest capital of all the countries on earth! And I felt it myself.

The way of Genghis Khan.

The way: Irkutsk, Baikal Trakt, Kultuk, Slyudanka, Tunkinskaya valley, Mondy, then – incredible steppe expanses. This is a road to one of the countries of the most ancient nation – Mongolia. This road was used by Chingiz-Khan and him on foot and on horseback.

There was no limit to the excitement!

At the age of 6 my grandfather was sent as a great master builder to the glorious town of Darkhan (2nd after the capital by population). I went with my parents to live in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. To tell you the truth.

Having been once in Mongolia, it remains in the heart forever.

I wanted to start with the fact that most people have the wrong idea about Mongolia, I have more than once heard the question, “Are there any high-rise buildings in Mongolia?” There is a stereotype that the entire population lives in yurts and hopscotch.

It soothes the soul and heart) For lovers of eco-tourism)

Going to Western Mongolia to travel for three years in a row. What is this trip for me? 1. The possibility to see the beauty of nature not only in Mongolia but also in the Altai Mountains. 2. To enjoy the tranquility of the Mongolian steppes.

Trip Review of Mongolia (Mongolia). My trip is coming to an end and we are slowly starting to pack our suitcases. The idea to visit this country came up spontaneously. Since vacation was in full swing, repairs were coming up.

A delight and a memory to last a lifetime!

Cheap compared to other tourist trips Untouched history for lovers of ancient artifacts Low cost of food Good open people

Bad roads and inability to get around by rail in many places! Distances between sites are too long! Air travel abroad is only possible from the capital!

Wild expanses, untouched forests and endless steppe, great rivers and mountain ranges! Traveling through these expanses you feel as if you are going back in time, to the time of our ancestors! The delight and feelings for the whole year, untouched landscapes are magnificent! В.

Gorgeous country.

No tourists and no infrastructure. Grandiose nature. Huge spaces. Everywhere you can drive up by car – there are no tolls.

Travelled in the company of an organized group of 5 off-road vehicles. We left Novokuznetsk and entered Mongolia through Altai and Tyva. We were in the beginning of August. The whole trip took 15 days. Altai, – very beautiful nature, but a lot.

This is one of the most vivid impressions of all the trips!

Terrific nature, amazing customs and culture, the ability to replenish energy, the lack of news and other junk.

The lack of roads and other amenities on most of the territory, specific cuisine (lamb, mutton and mutton again).

I wanted to go to Mongolia for a long time. For some reason there are countries where you are drawn to for some unknown reason. And somehow in June 2013 I had a chance to go there with friends to the Sports Tourist Festival. Here is how it was.

Almost untouched nature and a peculiar way of life

I’ve been to Mongolia before, during Soviet times. It was common then to exchange experiences. I was able to go to Choibolsan. I must admit, I was surprised by everything I saw: how people live, where they work, what they buy.

Want to visit again.

Hello to all lovers of travel and tourists. Our trip started with the choice of the destination, of course there are a lot of destinations, but the time for vacation was only 5 days, and here we decided to live near Mongolia, and not once.

The Land of One City. An independent trip.

Good food, low prices, inexpensive leather and cashmere products, colorful locals, relaxed atmosphere.

Not everywhere understand Russian and English, developing a tourist destination (soon everything will be more expensive, the quality is lower, the attitude is only for money), expensive gasoline, complete chaos on the roads.

We entered Mongolia from the side of China, decided to cross it and go to Baikal on the way home. Visas to Mongolia had already been canceled at that time. The border on the Chinese side can only be crossed by car if.

Peaceful

September 2006. We applied for passports with my wife. We have a one-year-old daughter, she was entered in the passport of my wife. We bought a ticket to Ulan-Ude on the train. It is advisable to book tickets in advance. Direct train #133 from Samara without changing trains. Photo: Station.

Mongolia. Ukrainians. Photo.

Mongolia was a long-time dream of mine that came true in 2016. Our journey began in Ukraine, having reached Voronezh by bus, we took a train to Omsk, where our acquaintances were waiting to visit us.
