A great trip with Gobi Attraction Tours and Guesthouse We did a 7 Days Gobi Desert and Terelj National Park trip with Gobi Attraction Tours in July 2018 and it was amazing! Our guides (Turgol and Uchka) were very informative and accommodating throughout the trip! We would like to thank the crew (our 2 guides, 3 drivers and cook) as well as our coordinator, Hogy for making the arrangements and help in order to make this trip possible!

Below are the answers to some of the questions we get asked the most often, please have a look if your questions are already there, if not feel free to email us to [email protected]
1. When is the best time to come to Mongolia?
May to October is the best season, with the high season in July for the Naadam Festival. August and September are also suitable months of the year, our climate is such that you will still have many sunny days at this time. June and October are the most colorful month of the year. If you like the cold season and if you would like to get totally different feeling December is also a good month with winter fun.
2. Is Mongolia a safe destination?
Mongolia has one of the lowest crime rates in the world and people are known for their nomadic hospitality and kindness and they will make you feel very welcome. But when you are in the street in Ulaanbaatar city, you have to watch your bag and wallet unless there are many pickpockets around. It is a city.
3. What should I bring with me?
Warm and thin layers of clothing, waterproof jacket, good walking boots, sandals, and a hat and/or headscarf to protect you from the sun and winds. Don’t forget insect repellent, sun cream, lip-gloss and first aid kit (medicine for headache, cold, diarrhea, runny nose; bandages; any medicine prescribed for you ) and camera equipment.
