Top Countryside Destinations in Mongolia

What is unique about Mongolia? Founded by Genghis Khan in 1206, it became the largest connecting empire in history. Originating on the steppes of Central Asia, at its peak it stretched all the way from Central Europe to the Sea of Japan, extending north into Siberia and south into the Indian subcontinent.

Mongolia is famous not only for being an emerging economy, but also for its beautiful countryside that consists of beautiful mountains, lakes, deserts and parks. This article looks at the various countryside destinations one can enjoy while visiting this frontier market. 

Furthermore, Mongolia is a vast landscape waiting to be explored. Steeped in history and culture, and home to a population of approx. 3 million, at least 25% of whom are still living a nomadic lifestyle, Mongolia is like no other country. If you haven't yet travelled to Mongolia, you should definitely move it to the top of your bucket list whilst it still remains as unique and untouched as now. There are countless reasons.
