Travel Packing list for Mongolia

What should I pack when traveling to Mongolia?

Even if travelling in summer be prepared for a sudden change of temperature. Nights can be chilly with the temperature in the steppe and mountain areas. The key to clothing is the layering system. Layers can be added or discarded with temperature fluctuations.
We suggest you check the climate of your travel season, month and then choose the appropriate clothes. In most cases, you will not need to bring towels as you will be provided in the hotels and tourist Ger camps.
