Any suggestions on which tour group is the best. I would go on my own but I am a 24 year old woman travelling solo.
I am a young American woman who is teaching abroad in South Korea. I would like to take a trip to Mongolia in early August. I would like to travel with a smaller group for maybe a week long trip. There are many companies to choose from but I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion. Any information on any trip to Mongolia would be greatly appreciated!
If you can get there yourself, then Khongor Guesthouse and UB Guesthouse are the leading budget tour operators there.
I love Toroo and Degi at the Khongor Guesthouse - I have been 5 times and always stay with them. Their Guesthouse is a basic youth hostel and they run a huge variety of 'tours'. Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org The trips are by minivan or Russian van and fairly flexible. I'd recommend a nomad stay.
A week isn't a long time as there are huge distances to cover. You could go to Terkin Tsagaan Nuur (White Lake) and Karakorum, maybe a little of the Gobi which will give you a flavour of steppe, lakeland, monastery/ancient city and desert). If you had 10 days, you could go into the Gobi proper or go to Hovsgol.

Hi, I am another American woman (32 yrs) working/ living in South Korea. I too am going to Mongolia for my summer break, from August 10-19th. Will you be there at the same time? If so, do you want a traveling partner?
