Mongolia in a Nutshell
The largest landlocked country in the world is also one of the least populated with little over 3 million inhabitants. The explanation for this lies in the fact that Mongolia is made up of vast steppes and deserts, such as the Gobi Desert, a place where adventurers are given the privilege to visit the Khongoryn Els dunes, also known as the “singing sands”. But there’s more to this remote land: joyful Naadam festivals, organized nomadic crossings, hikes at Gorkhi- Terelj National Park (in the outskirts of Mongolia’s capital of Ulaanbaatar) and face-to-face encounters with Genghis Khan (fear not, we mean its statue).
