Nomadic Expeditions

A nomadic expedition through Mongolia

On your next vacation, rather than soak up the sun on a tourist-infested beach resort, soak up some culture and the spirit of adventure in Mongolia, where the sweeping steppes and shifting desert sands will surely take your breath away.

With the help of Nomadic Expeditions, a travel agency that offers unique adventures in Mongolia, you can experience nomadic life in this vast country where Genghis Khan’s once and former empire took root. One such adventure is an eco tour of Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, not too far from the capital, Ulan Bator. There you can really get intimate with the locals by staying with a nomadic host family, who will provide you with lodging in their ‘ger’ (a traditional tent-like dwelling) and local delicacies, such as homemade ‘Buuz’ (steamed meat dumplings) and ‘Khuushuur’ (fried meat pancakes). Unleash the cowboy in you by going horseback riding, fishing and rifle shooting. If you’re lucky, you might be treated to some traditional Mongolian music, namely throat singing and string playing with the ‘morin huur’ (a horse-head fiddle).

“Hu! Ha! Genghis Khan!”
