Unsurpassed scenery, large birds of prey, nomads, camping, remoteness, temples, peacefulness, isolation are just a few of the words to describe the Mongolian Wilderness. My trip took me from North-Eastern Thailand via Bangkok to Beijing, China, where I stayed in a Transit Hotel for a few hours before the 1+ hour flight to Ulan Bator in Mongolia.After staying in the city for a couple of days, I ventured into the wilderness, including Terelj National Park. The excellent Selena Travel Group planned my transport and guide for the excursion. Note: You could do this yourself, but getting lost or car breaking down would not be good.The further away from UB I ventured, the more sparse it became.I experienced: camping in a Ger, getting up close and personal with a large Vulture and a White Eagle, spending time with a Nomadic family at their home, trekking up to Aryaval Monastery, climbing into the horse's head of the Genghis Khan Statue, to name a few.It was a very fulfilling adventure as well as educational.I was back in UB for Mother's and Children's Day, a celebration of family, which is a very important part of Mongolian culture.I also found an Irish Pub and a Mongolian Massage Parlor. All good.Finally departed on a MIAT flight to Hong Kong. Another Bucket List item checked off.Maybe one to add to yours.
