Tours for First-Time Travelers

Mongolia is known as the “Land of the eternal blue sky” because we get over 250 sunny days a year. This is a landlocked country in center east Asia bordered by Russia and China. The Mongolia is divided by 21 provinces – aimag. The capital city Ulaanbaatar is acting as its own municipality with provincial status. Strictly, all paved roads in Mongolia lead up to this one capital city one way or another in the end. Ulaanbaatar city was actual nomadic city that moved 29 times before settling in its current location. The country has main railway that transects the north to south entering both Russia and China called Trans-Mongolian Railway.
