Your Mongolia Holiday with Wendy Wu Tours

Mongolia is a vast, remote, but truly naturally beautiful country. Expect an amazing wilderness experience with rolling countryside, huge steppes, rugged mountains, pristine lakes, and a plethora of wildlife and livestock. Though it is still a developing country with basic infrastructure, this is all part of its alluring charm and visitors are flocking to escape the modernity of everyday life. Mongolia is safe to visit and locals are very friendly and willing to open up their homes and hearts to complete strangers.

Your Wendy Wu Tours experience begins before you travel and we are there every step of the way until you return home. Our customers are our priority, and we will do all we can to ensure your holiday is one to remember.

This Travel Guide provides you with practical advice and cultural information to help you prepare for your holiday. We are aware that this can seem like a lot of reading material, but we ask that you take some time to familiarise yourself with this information prior to departure and refer to the contents within throughout your travels.

Your tour dossier and final itinerary provides a straightforward description of the physical activities involved in each day’s sightseeing. If there are any particular challenges, from the length of time spent on your feet, the duration of drives and flights, to the standard of remote accommodation for our more adventurous tours; they will be explained there.

More about your holiday

Almost everything will be different from what you may be used to. We have found that our passengers who embark on their journey with a sense of adventure and who accept that things do not always go to plan, are those who find their experience most rewarding. 

We urge our customers to embrace the new ‘normal’ and keep in mind all the rewards, as well as challenges, of travelling in a country with a history and culture, so unlike our own. A typical day may include a hike or 4WD to see remarkable sand and rock landscapes, or a walk around one of the many beautiful lakes before staying in a Ger Camp nearby. Experience the nomadic Mongols' simple life and get back to nature. 

Part of the enjoyment of travelling abroad is experiencing a different way of life and culture, but it may also mean experiencing different safety and hygiene standards than those we are used to at home. We want you to have an enjoyable holiday so we ask that you take extra care, use your common sense as well as refer to notices and follow the advice from your National Escort/Local Guides. There is a low level of English spoken throughout Mongolia, so your National Escort/Local Guides will be indispensable during your trip

Our tours are operated at a comfortable, moderate or active pace and this is shown on the tour page in our brochure, on our website, and in the tour dossier. For more information on the more active aspects of our tours, please refer to your tour dossier.

Our National Escort/Local Guides always endeavour to provide the highest level of service and assistance, but they cannot be expected to cater for passengers who are not fit enough to complete the itinerary
