Mongolia

Echoes of Ghengis Khan

THE EXPERIENCE

Synonymous with inaccessibility and thwarted by tales of a bloody past, the 21st century seems not to have arrived in Mongolia. A country that eloquently expresses itself through its swooping Golden Eagles, thundering horse hooves and big, blue skies, this journey is a melting pot of hospitality, pageantry and wild Slavic beauty. Dine under a canopy of stars, make lifelong friends and remember this time for the rest of your life.
