​How to Travel to Mongolia

Mongolia is an incredibly beautiful country; it’s no wonder it’s on many people’s bucket list of travel destinations. And now that you’re making plans to travel there, you’re probably wondering if it’s better to self-organize or go with a tour company.

If you’re planning on traveling on your own, you’ll be entirely responsible for securing your own accommodations and transportation. It will also be up to you to navigate your way around to look for food and drink. Depending on where you are from, the language barrier may be a problem. And there’s also the fact that you will need to rely solely on what you have researched about Mongolia to get you from one site to the next.

However, if you were to travel to Mongolia with a travel company, here’s what you can expect:


Detailed Itinerary

A tour company knows exactly how much time it takes to get one activity to the next. They will create the itinerary for you and may even customize one based on your preferences. This takes away the hassle of having to plan everything out yourself.

Group Discounts

Perhaps one of the biggest perks of traveling with a tour company is that bigger groups enjoy discounts on activities, food, and drinks.

Intimate Knowledge

There are plenty of beautiful places to visit in Mongolia. And because tour companies have had extensive experience arranging tours, they’ll know exactly which parts of this magnificent country are absolute must-sees and best guide you in your experience.

Social Advantage

A tour company can help you immerse in the unique culture and stunning scenery of Mongolia. If you were to travel alone, the locals may struggle to understand you because of the language barrier. However, when you travel with a tour company, they’ll be able to speak for you and get you to places you wouldn’t otherwise get to see. Another social advantage of traveling with a group is getting to meet people from all over the world who are experiencing Mongolia for the first time like you are.


Because tour companies know the lay of the land, they can help keep you safe on your adventure activities such as camel riding, nature hikes, and sightseeing historical sites. And because your guides will be knowledgeable about local weather conditions and the environment, they will be aware of all the potential danger zones.

Unique Tour Trail

Reliable tour companies have been arranging tours for so long that they’ve come to discover many fascinating and often secret areas that the general public doesn’t know about. They just might take you off the typical tourist trail to introduce you to a completely unique experience.
