Is this tour suitable for my family?

We suggest this tour for families over three years old kids. Families with small children are always welcome, and we happily customize the tour or tailor one for your family. To let you experience and discover much of our beautiful and unique culture country in a relatively short period, we developed the itinerary to be jam-packed with more outdoor activities and attractions. As well as, some driving between the attractions. Luckily, infrastructure developed more in central Mongolia and more than two third of the travel driving will take place on the paved roads which help us to have more activities, spend more time at the attractions and some free time to play and relax rather than spending most of our time driving on bumpy roads. Approximate day driving will be 2-5 hours. During the tour, you will stay in ger camps in the countryside and a hotel in Ulaanbaatar. The tour has not included any risky or physical activities. The camel, horse and yak riding will be supported by local guides and follow your guides’ guidance is recommended. There will be some hiking and a climb to Khorgo volcano. Another thing people concern a lot is the meals of Mongolia either they travel themselves or with kids. Most of our clients evaluated Mongolian meals better than what they expected while few say the meals were not good because of a lot of meat, dairy products and common vegetables. We agree on it and asking the clients’ dietary is one of our most important questions. Informing us about your kids’ meal preference is critical particularly when you travel with your kids. The ger camps where we stay overnights serves with European and Mongolian meals. Fruits are not abundant in most rural areas. Therefore, you can take some extra provisions such as fresh fruit, snacks, some chocolates or sweets from Ulaanbaatar before depart. The road bumps or rough roads driving may cause motion sickness.

When is the best time to take part the tour?

The most suitable time to travel is between 20 May and 10 September. During this period, the weather will be warm and enjoyable. However, you should not expect warm weather during the trip either you travel in summer or certain times as vast Mongolian territory differentiates in altitude and earth surface. Overall, Mongolia is elevated at least 700 m high above surrounding Siberian plateau and Chinese territory. Therefore, the weather is extreme and fluctuates a lot hourly, daytime and at night. Receiving snowfalls is common in May, end of August and September. Rainfalls turn into snowfalls in high elevated areas either in summer months of June, July and August. Average monthly temperatures are +20°C, highest 27°C daytime in May, first half of June, last half of August and in September. Average +25°C, highest 35-38°C daytime in late June, July and early August. The temperature drops 10-20°C in the evenings and at nights. For your pre-departure preparation and an idea to prepare this inflexible weather condition, you may check our detailed packing list of the discovery tours.

Accommodation

Due to the weather condition, tourism season in Mongolia is short. Mongolian tourism depends highly on the season and seasonal accommodation ger camps are fully open between 20 May and 10 September. During other shoulder months, the ger camps are partially open and closed in winter.
