Transportation (Mongolia)

Road Conditions

There is more than 20,000km of road stretching across Mongolia. Only 1,600km of this distance
is paved. In the countryside, you will be travelling across many different surfaces, from gravel
highways to wide, open plains where the route is marked out by poles. The roads can be rough,
and a level of discomfort can be expected

Coaches & 4WD

In Ulaanbaatar, we use modern, air-conditioned coaches. Everywhere else we use sturdy 4WD
vehicles, which best suit this terrain. Each 4WD vehicle will hold three passengers per vehicle and the National Guide will rotate from each vehicle to become the fourth passenger. They will drive in convoy and endeavour to stay within sight of each other throughout the day.

Seatbelts are compulsory by law in Mongolia, however particularly in rural areas local people largely choose not to wear them. Wendy Wu Tours will ensure that the 4WD vehicles are fitted with seatbelts. Drivers often use seat covers to make their vehicles more presentable. If they obstruct your access to seatbelts, please request that they be adjusted or removed. It is recommended that where seat belts are available customers must use them and remain seated at all times whilst the vehicle is moving. Please see your National Guide if you have any concerns.

Domestic flights

Wendy Wu Tours utilises a number of different domestic carriers within Mongolia. Planes are very similar to those you would travel on domestically at home, with allocated seats. Depending on flight duration meals may/may not be provided. Group members may not necessarily be seated together. The flight schedule of domestic airlines changes frequently, hence all domestic flights that appear in your itinerary are very subject to change. Please ensure that all valuables and any medications you may need for the rest of the day are taken onboard with you.

The baggage limit is 15kg suitcase + 5kg hand luggage per passenger and bags must be locked. All seats are economy class. Airlines currently do not allow liquids (alcohol, spirits, wine, water, perfume etc.) or sharp objects to be carried on-board the aircraft and these will be confiscated. Wendy Wu Tours issues all domestic flight tickets in Mongolia, and tickets will be handled by your National Escort/Local Guide and given to each passenger just prior to their flight.
