What it feels like to be there...

Mongolia embodies adventure like no other country on earth, with genuine wilderness from the steppes to the Gobi desert. Stunning Gorkhi-Terelj National Park sits near the capital Ulaan Bataar like an ornate gateway to the harsher lands beyond. Trek in the footsteps of the young Genghis Khan at the nearby Burkhan Khaldun mountain. 

What to do there…

Gorkhi-Terelj is packed with activities and perfect for 7 days:
  • Major: Horse-riding, Camel-riding, Bird-watching, Cycling, Nature-walks, Fishing, Boat-trips, Kayaking, Ice-skating, Cultural-visits, Historical-sites, Photography, Spa/Massage.
  • Other: Tennis, Badminton, Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball, Swimming, Kid-friendly.

Where to stay…

The 5* Terelj Hotel has brought unbridled opulence to Mongolia, finally making it accessible to luxury adventurers. Its palatial style makes you feel like the guest of royalty, and the concierge staff treat you with helpful deference. Its location and the activities on offer make it easy to live out some great wilderness-conquering fantasies.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Ulaan Bataar airport is just over 1h away by car. Eznis Airways flights to Dalanzadgad take 1.5h, running 4 times per week. A 4x4 journey into the Gobi takes 1.5h from there.
  • Weather: this is a land of extremes, from below freezing Nov-Mar to pleasantly warm in Jun-Aug. Very little rain all year.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

It is an amazing experience being this far off the tourist trail. With so much wild space to explore in every direction, adventures seem to seek you out. To get the real Genghis Khan feel, don’t miss the chance to ride horses through the beautiful meadows, the wind in your hair and high mountains on the distant horizon. The friendly guides will proudly share it all with you. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. To add a comment or check out what our community has to say, please click here: Genghis Can

What it feels like to be there...

A land of horse-riding warriors and the ‘great unifier’ Genghis Khan, Mongolia is famous for the great grass plains of the steppe and the wild Gobi desert. Luxury has just arrived in the wilderness, allowing you to be one of the first to get out and explore it in style. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

Ulaan Bataar has the only international airport in the country, and local flights to Dalanzadgad airport service the Gobi region. The weather is dry and cold Nov-Mar, and while temperatures are warm in summer, harsh winds make weather-proof clothing vital.

What it feels like to be there...

The mist-filled swooping valleys and ancient pagoda temples of the region attain even greater peacefulness in comparison with its soaring skyscrapers and bustling metropolises. Seek out moments of Zen calm and let its fascinating cultures challenge your views. 

Some practical information worth knowing…

Singapore and Hong Kong airports are the largest travel hubs in the region, but Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo and Osaka are all easily reachable (often direct) from the major cities of the world. The climate in the coastal regions varies from wet to dry as the latitude increases, and is influenced by the Pacific monsoon system. Further inland, especially in the shadow of the Himalayas, the weather is colder and dryer. European languages, especially English, are only sporadically understood, even in tourist areas. But with calm hand signals, it is easy to get most points across. Getting money from cash machines is straightforward with any major provider at airports, but otherwise more difficult – so plan ahead.
