Find Attractions and Things To Do In Mongolia
Mongolia is a landlocked country located between China and Russia. It is a vast emptiness that links land and sky and is one of the last few places on the planet where nomadic life is still a living tradition.
With only 1.7 people per square kilometer, Mongolia has the lowest population density of any independent country, and it is this vast and majestic emptiness that is the country's enduring appeal, bringing the traveler into a close communion with nature and its nomadic inhabitants.
The country is nicknamed the "Land of Blue Skies," as there is said to be about 250 sunny days throughout each year. The weather is bitterly cold during the winter, dropping down to -40º Celsius (-40º F) in some parts. With many types of terrain - from desert to verdant mountains - the weather during the summer varies from region to region but is generally hot.
