Mongolia is truly one of the world's last undiscovered travel destinations and, even today, is one of the the safest countries to visit. It is a land where you can experience the untouched beauty of wide-open spaces, deep blue skies, forests, deserts, crystal clear rivers and lakes, and the traditional hospitality of the nomads. Permanent dwellings are few and far between, fences even fewer and the land is owned by the people, like one large National Park. With a total land area of 1,566,000 sq km (610,740 sq mi) and a population of only 3 million, this is an open an wild land that invites hardy souls to explore its windswept grasslands and Ger tents. Said simply, this a land of adventure, horses, nomads, and forever horizons of blue sky.
