Why I Won't Miss Mongolia

Jump to last reply

Mongolian food. Not one camp or lodge served Mongolian food. They served some variant of "western". Would you consider Deep Fried Trout covered in Ranch Dressing - Western?

Destinations.

- Lake Hovsgol. Not worth the effort.
- Terelj National Park. Nice but not special.
- Gobi. Diversity and great vistas.

Four days riding in a Russian Waz Furgon van. For me, a definite once in a life time experience.

Ulaan Baatar traffic. As bad as reported.

Having only been to 100+ countries I would suggest that there are many places with wonderful mountains for hiking. As noted, Gobi was nice for most part. Yol Valley was so-so.

By all means, if you want to see some dinosaur bone pieces - "Fighting Dinosaurs" - "Flaming Cliffs" - go for it. However, you can ride a camel or pony many other places.

Many will disagree but... that's my take.
