Bring the kids to Mongolia next summer. It will be a fine adventure for the whole family with 10 days of fun and exciting experiences for people of any age.
We travel by jeep to Arkhangai province in Central Mongolia where Genghis Khan established the capital of the great Mongol Empire in the thirteenth century. The countryside varies from steppe to mountain to desert and forest. Everyone will get a chance to ride horses, camels and even a yak and cart, as the local people do.
You will experience traditional Mongolian hospitality and spend time with a nomadic family, perhaps watching the horses being milked or playing with their children. At the hot springs you can enjoy bathing in outdoor pools on the edge of the forest and near the town of Kharkhorin you will see monks of all ages performing Buddhist rituals in the ancient temples of Erdene Zuu monastery.

The sheer beauty of the Mongolian landscape surpassed
expectations. The wildlife was amazing - pairs of golden eagles just sitting by the
road! Staying in gers was fun, as was meeting some of the local people and
sampling 101 things to do with yak's milk...
Absolutely fantastic. The group got on really well, despite the age
difference between the kids
I have some wonderful memories, I would not hesitate to recommend it to a

Just a short note to thank you so much for arranging one of the most interesting tours I have ever been on. I am particularly grateful to have been able to take part in your interesting group in order to experience the culture, life style and friendliness of the Mongolian people. It will also be a trip that, in many ways, I will not forget!
