Mongolia is an Asian country bordered by Russia and China. Mongolia is a vast country where land meets sky.
Mongolia is one of the last places in the world where nomadic lifestyles still exist. Mongolia has one of the lowest population density in the world among the independent countries.
Although the Capital is pretty modern the rest of the country is massively untouched by mass tourism. Safety is a bit of a concern in Mongolia with much Xenophobia and violence towards tourists is common. There are gangs of people who class themselves as Neo-Nazis and like to assault foreigners. The capital can particularly be bad for it.
However for many people the vast nature that is around makes for the ultimate outdoor experience. With beautiful sand dunes, amazing landscapes and big lakes. Wild camping is the ultimate adventure to sleep under the stars with no one around for miles and miles. For the traveler Mongolia is the land of landscape and starry nights.
