Long dry sunny days and crisp nights in June and July. Expect rainfall and cooler temperatures late August and into September. As a rule, always plan for any weather contingency; even in peak season, weather can change abruptly from warm and dry to wet and cold (not uncomfortably so).
Expect the warm dry days to suddenly change into cold, wet ones; pack well to anticipate this snap change in weather. Otherwise still a great time to tour Mongolia; prices may be lower than peak season, with less crowds and better accommodation availability.
The Mongolian winter, when temperatures can drop below severely. Bone-chilling winds and harsh storms. Only the most intrepid tourists, the hardiest of nomads and their faithful Bactrian camels are around at this time.
Demystifying Mongolia can be a daunting task, but that is what this expat-and-local duo have done for 23 years now, with a clientele 19000 strong that include celebs, royalty and some of the top 100 richest families in the world. Excelling in yak-and-camel supported horseback safaris and treks, snow-leopard expeditions and world-class fly-fishing on two of Mongolia's great rivers, nobody understands this country better than them; their path-breaking efforts to bring tourism to this magnificent country were rewarded by the President of Mongolia in 2011. Even Genghis, the Great Khan, would be proud of them.
Imagine the endless expanses of Mongolia, combine that with 30+ years of horse-riding experience, and you get a saddle-back experience that will be hard to beat. Co-founded by 2 expats (one of who has lived in Mongolia for 16 years), and co-managed by several experienced locals, this team has won presitigious international accolades for their amazing horse safaris and treks through Mongolia. This is the closest you will come to experiencing what it must have been like in the great days of The Khan.
