The Yolin Am Valley in south Mongolia is a good locale for camping and hiking. You'll need to fly there from Ulaanbaatar but the trip is certainly worth it. Accomodations can be found at tented (yurt-ed?) campsites in the area and semi-wild camels...

After a few days of Mongolian comfort food, you might want a little spice. And why not try out Ulaanbaatar's best (and possibly only) North Korean restaurant? Do not be deterred by the fact that the menu descriptions are a little vague and that...

Arburd Sands, a few hours drive from Ulan Bator, is a patch of the Gobi Desert worth visiting for those who aren't able to get to Khongoryn Els in the south of Mongolia. Camel riding is possible here and the dunes are lovely.

I wanted to go on a trip that was off the beaten path and so I picked Mongolia. I knew it was going to be quite an effort to get there so I wanted to make the most of it. I timed my trip to coincide with the Naadam Festival which is three day...

Kazakh people in the Bayan-Ulgii province of western Mongolia continue the ancient Central Asian tradition of falconry (training raptors to catch wild game). Using golden eagles, the Kazakhs capture such prey as rabbits, red foxes, and wolves in...

There aren't that many rivers in Mongolia but for some odd reason, every one of the handful of bridges we came across were crooked and in all the wrong directions. For some other odd reason, although every bridge was wide enough for us to drive...

Altai Mountains, Mongolia
Picture of me crossing a river in the Altai Mountains in western Mongolia during a 2-week horse trek. The experience was incredible! As this is one of several journeys to Mongolia.
