Mongolia in 7 days

In a country the size of western Europe, half of Mongolia’s population still pursue their ancient nomadic traditions, scattered like seeds across the landscape. What is not to love about a country that is so vast, remote, and naturally beautiful?

 
The tour guide was the best guide of my life. This says something because I’ve traveled to 75 countries.
