Almost inexplicably, Mongolia, a ruggedly beautiful country bordered by Kazakhstan, Russia, and China, largely escaped the attention of all but the most adventurous travellers until the late twentieth century. Consequently, this enigmatic country retains much of its ancient culture and tradition - when you visit, you'll no doubt feel that you're exploring an undiscovered country.
Travelling through Mongolia by rail is by far the best way to appreciate the sheer scale and beauty of its unspoilt terrain. The country forms part of one of the most iconic train journeys in the world: the 8,000-mile trip through Northern Asia aboard the Trans-Siberian Express, a truly extraordinary journey.
Ask one of our friendly advisors to include Mongolia on your bespoke holiday itinerary, and you'll enjoy spectacular views of the vast, grassy steppes for which the country is famous. In this wild and open country, nomadic shepherds still tend their flocks, sleeping in the traditional round yurt, a portable tent constructed from wood and animal skins or felt. This rugged land reveals more treasures as you pass distant mountains, desert dunes and clear, placid lakes.
