The Tribe's opinion

Welcome to the country of Genghis Khan! Your first stop will be Ulan Bator : this soviet looking city was built around the Suhbaatar square and is expending at an incredible rate! Indeed, most of the nomad people in the countryside are drown to it for the illusion of a better life style. The reality is quiet different as you will witness a lot of poverty all around you. Mongolia is all about its people and its amazing landscapes, and I definitely suggest that you spend at least 15 days with a guide to go and explore the Mongol steppe (I don't recommend to get out there on your own as very few people speak English). Remember that it is extremely cold during winters (- 50 degrees Celsius) and quiet hot during summer (+ 30 degrees Celsius).
