Mongolia is a country with an extremely rich past. An extremely important avenue along the Silk Road, Mongolia was an economic and trading powerhouse during those times.
Despite being in between two of the world’s most technologically advanced nations, China and The Russian Federation, to this day, the country seems to have come to a standstill. Whether it is a journey through Mongolia’s landscape and Gobi Desert or visiting the relatively ancient capital of Ulaan Bator, all these are excellent ways to experience the country’s dramatic scenery and the traditional lifestyle of its people. Mongolia’s vast landscape is home to a rich cultural life – Shamanistic Buddhism, amazingly riotous festivals as well as a nomadic way of life.
