Mongolia

Striking and rugged landscapes, dotted with timeworn Buddhist monasteries and crystal-clear lakes.

Untamed and untread, Mongolia enchants with wide-open plains, friendly and proud people, and the lore of one of the world’s greatest empires. With A&K, explore this stark, sparsely populated land which feels unchanged from the days of the great warlord Genghis Khan.

Mongolia’s landscape is striking and rugged, dotted with timeworn Buddhist monasteries and crystal-clear lakes. Upon the vast expanse of the rolling steppes and Gobi Desert, nomadic herdsmen - nearly half the population - still live in gers, and with A&K, you too can overnight under the stars in Yolyn Am in a traditional luxury tent. Meet Mongolia’s herdsmen as well throughout the journey, learning firsthand about an ancient, rare way of life.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL

May to September is the best season, with the peak season in July for the Naadam Festival. July and August are also the wettest months of the year, but be assured, the climate is such that you will still have many sunny days at this time. The best time to visit the Gobi is June or September.
