Good To Know
- The best time to make this trip
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, our 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.
We believe that comfortable, welcoming accommodation is vital to the enjoyment of your trip. You will be staying in a standard tourist ger camp (traditional dwelling) with currency (220V), shower and other useful services (2 to 4 people per ger) in the countryside. All accommodation offered by Black Ibex Expeditions is personally checked by our staff to ensure standards.
In Ulaanbaatar, you will be dining at fine European and Asian cuisine restaurants. Mutton, beef, rice, and noodles form the basis of the Mongolian diet, so your meals will be based around this. However, the trail rations may include vegetables, eggs, peanut butter, cheese and sometimes yak! On some days there will be lunchboxes from tourist camps. It is good food and our experience has been that guests are happy with this arrangement. Please let us know in advance if you are a vegetarian. Alcohol is not provided on the trip but tourists are free to bring their own.
Black Ibex Expeditions use the highest level, latest model, air-conditioned private vans or 4WD vehicles for the maximum comfort on your touring days. A day\'s drive in the countryside will be approx 200-250km.
- Personal things to bring with you:
