Mongolia

Mongolia

Mongolia is a special place for people who enjoy the outdoors and adventure. By jeep, on foot or on horseback, the natural wonders of Mongolia are a rival to any venue in the world, from the snowcapped mountains of the Altai and alpine lakes of Khövsgöl to the dry washes of the Gobi famous for its dinosaur bones. Enjoy the buddhist temples, the abundant wildlife and the hospitality from Reindeer people or Kazakh eagle hunters.

Mongolia remains as one of the most unspoiled travel destinations. Enjoy the old traditions and untouched nature of the Altai mountains, while trekking through or climbing the highest peak, the mount Khuiten.

Mongolian wildlife

Mongolia has 136 mammal species, almost 400 different types of birds and 76 species of fish. From the abundance of wolves to the globally endangered snow leopard, there is a myriad of wildlife to track. The country hosts an array of wildlife species, including large mammals such as the ibex, the Przewalski’s horses, the moose, the camels and two species of gazelles. Magnificent birds of prey, including the endangered imperial eagle, the saker falcon, the golden eagle, the steppe eagle, the boreal owl and the cinereous vulture soar through its skies. The Eastern Steppe hosts the world’s last great spectacles of migrating ungulates.

The people

Mongolia is one of the most nomad countries in the world. There are actually quite a few ethnic groups, all of whom are the descendants of either Mongolian nomadic tribes or groups of Turkish origin who have become mongolized over the time. The Khalkh Mongols constitute 75% of the population. The other significant ethnic groups are the Kazakhs in the west of the country and the Buriates in the north. The Oirats are a group of ethnic western Mongolians, which includes smaller groups, as the Durvud, the Torgud, the Bayad, the Uuld, the Zakhchin, the Myangad and the Uriankhai. Since the early history of Mongolia, Oirat people have resided around Siberia’s Baikal Lake, the Sayan Mountain Ranges in Northern Mongolia and forested areas within the Altai Mountain Range. Northern Mongolian ethnic groups include the Darkhat, the Tsaatan and the Khotgoid.

  • Before we invented civilization our ancestors lived mainly in the open out under the sky. Before we devised artificial lights and atmospheric pollution and modern forms of nocturnal entertainment we watched the stars. There were practical calendar reasons of course but there was more to it than that. Even today the most jaded city dweller can be unexpectedly moved upon encountering a clear night sky studded with thousands of twinkling stars. When it happens to me after all these years it still takes my breath away. #carlsagan
