Staying with Mongolian nomads on one of their seasonal camps is an opportunity that few people seem to know about.
Mongolia is a landlocked country located between China and Russia. Mongolia is the sixth largest country in Asia. When travelers think of Mongolia, they often think of the bitterly cold winters, but Mongolia actually sees an average of 250 days of sunshine a year. Travel in Mongolia often includes a visit to one of Asia’s largest fresh water lakes (Lake Khövsgöl) and permanent mountain glaciers. A top destination when traveling to Mongolia is the Bonda Lake Camp in Khatgal Village near Lake Khövsgöl, where travelers can fish, hike, horseback ride and visit the nomads.
Visitors from all over the world attend Mongolia’s Naadam Festival to watch the original “Three Manly Sports.”
