If you happen to be travelling in the summers, prefer to include the Nomads Day festival and Naadam Festival on your Mongolian holiday package.

If you can lay your hand on the Golden Eagle, it should be the most unique vacation you have ever won!
If shooting eagles is not a part of your plan, you can head straight to the crystal clear waters in Lake Khovsgol. This too can be done while you are mounted on a horse and in true Mongol style. This lake is special and as the smoothly running waters meanders through the bedrock, the view therein is certainly enchanting. Far in the horizon embrace the majestic mountains and add tranquility to the scape. Her, you will also encounter some of the most amazing animal species of this world including the White Tailed Gazzles and Ibex.
Apart from natural wonders, Mongolia has a lot to deliver in terms of human interest sites. The Gobi Desert hosts some secluded ruins that can be a mesmerizing experience. Also do find out the time to discover the Khoomie songs sung by locals and the incredible array of traditional clothing they dress in.
As you return, don’t forget to have a bite of the Nomadic food and their traditional barbeque! Mongolia has a lot to give and is one of the most sought after destination in South East Asia holidays. Be sure to make it here at least once in your lifetime.
