As one of the world’s last bastions of nomadic culture, authentic only begins to describe Mongolia. Nicknamed the “Land of Eternal Blue Skies,” Mongolia’s countryside ranges from rugged mountains to the expansive Gobi Desert, and broad steppes dotted with ample wildlife, and just 1.7 persons per sq. km, making it one of the least densely populated countries in the world.

Destination Overview

Outside of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s bustling capital, the centuries-old tradition of living in yurts, or gers, nomadic herding, and eagle hunting still prevail.  This is truly a land time has passed by.

Experience Mongolia’s warm culture and dramatic landscapes on a once-in-lifetime adventure during the country’s most celebrated event, the Golden Eagle Festival. This exclusive, all-inclusive, 14-day Evolved Traveler journey, curated for just 12 guests, includes a visit to Ulaanbaatar, trekking the Khongor Sand Dunes, exploring flora and fauna of the Khustani National Park, and in what is sure to be the highlight of the journey, a stay with a Kazakh family in Bayan-Uglii during the famed Eagle Festival.
