This is a comfortable trip, with only limited camping. It can be extremely hot and dry in the summer when we visit, however, which can be challenging; ideal for lovers of history and stunning monuments. It is great also for "eclectic shoppers" in the bazaars and markets of Bukhara, Samarkand and Tashkent.

Day 1 - Ulaanbaatar (18th June 2021)

Border information: If you are joining in Ulaanbaatar, you will most likely enter Mongolia at Ulaanbaatar Chinggis Khaan International Airport (IATA code: ULN).

There will be a group meeting today at 6:00pm - please look out for a note from your tour leader at the hotel reception with more information about this important meeting, but please do not be alarmed if the note is not there as this is often a travel day for the tour leader and they may arrive in the afternoon. If you arrive early, the rest of the day will be free to explore the Mongolian capital!

Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Ulaanbaatar before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Ulaanbaatar.
