VB Getaway: Mongolia

July 27, 2018

Every summer, my mom and I take my five kids to a new place, and last summer it was Mongolia. We quickly realized that Mongolia would have the best mix of culture, art, history, and nature. We wanted to have the Nomadic experience, so we booked our trip with G Adventures. It’s not the vacation for everyone – it’s not pampering. This is where you go to have a truly unique and rich experience.

STAY

We wanted to have an authentic experience, so we stayed in traditional yurts or gers, and also spent one night under the stars with a nomadic family. This was an incredible way to experience the way of life in Mongolia!

EAT & DRINK

We tried everything from mutton to yak during our trip. It is traditional for a family to serve you horse milk when visiting their ger. And of course, don't miss out on the Mongolian beef!


DO

The Gobi Desert is a must-see. You can hike, ride a camel and take in some truly breathtaking sights. In Ulaanbaatar, we visited Gandan Monastery, Bogd Khan Palace, and Zaisan Hill.
