Mongolian winter is freezing cold! People might say there are no fun outdoor activities until summer comes. However, if well prepared, Mongolian winter can bring the most incredible and unique experience.
In the winter months, December, January and February, when temperatures dip well below -30°C (-22°F) all the rivers and lakes freeze and Mongolia has much to offer for winter tours. In the heart of winter, Mongolians celebrate their traditional Lunar New Year Festival. Traveling through Mongolia during the winter months is not an easy task but is well worth it. If well prepared you are in paradise, though a very cold one. The most thrilling Mongolia winter tours are the Eagle Hunting with the Kazakhs in the Altai mountains and Riding reindeers with Tsaatan in the Taiga. Also, winter tours are a chance to participate in the celebration of Tsagaan Sar (Lunar New Year).
Without a doubt, winter is the season that shapes the extraordinary Mongolian culture and characteristics. No matter how freezing cold it is outside, every Mongolian continues their daily life. Children go to school from Monday to Friday. Nomadic herders continue looking after their livestock. So, don't let the cold stand in your way! Traveling in Mongolian winter is a remarkable experience — it will show you how good Mongolians are at adaptation.
We welcome you to choose one of our Mongolia winter tours for once in a lifetime experience.
