What a wonderful couple the hosts are. We have spend 9 days at Gobi Attraction, of which 4 days were at their guesthouse and 5 days on the trip with them. From the start when we needed help with the visa and wanted to plan the trip, Hogy has been so helpful over the email. Adjusting the trip plan to our wants and needs. We found the same helpfulness when we got there :) From the pick-up from the airport, tips for shopping for cold weather, the lovely breakfast prepared next morning and the actual trip - They made it so easy for us! I am vegetarian and Hogy managed to prepare & order nicely varied meals for me throughout the trip. Pretty impressive! And on top of that, cook meat & varied meals for my partner as well :)
Gobi Attraction has the best guides ever! I would recommend Gobi attractions if you love to meet with the locals and learning some cultures. It’s such a memorable for my mother and I to have a great adventure together again after my father passed away 6 years ago. We will definitely go back to Mongolia again and travel with Gobi attractions!

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.
