We arrived on the 23rd of May into Ulan bataar, the capital, which is an awful looking place. We didn't stay there initially though because we got picked up straight from the airport (there was someone there with our names on a big board - very posh!!)and driven out into the wilderness for our "Mongolian Experience". Our guide was a 22 year old Mongolian student and she spoke excellent English, which we were delighted about because we weren't exactly fluent in Mongoilan!!. The journey out to the mountains was breathtaking. It really is a fabulously wild and untouched place.
We stayed in a Ger camp, a traditional mongolian tent thing, up in the middle of the Khentti Mountains about 200 miles from Ulan Bataar
It was lovely during the day, nice and warm, but as soon as the sun goes down it gets bitterly cold. It was -10 celcius one of the nights. We had a log fire in our Ger to keep us warm though.
I could go on and on but I'll stop it there. Keep your eyes open for the next entry!!
