A well-known axiom in Mongolia is that you can experience all four seasons in a day. Be prepared with layers and sturdy shoes.
Travelers should bring hiking boots to walking shoes, and a pair of sandals. A wide brimmed hat will keep the sun off your face. Light clothing including shorts and t-shirts are acceptable.
For your valuables/traveler's cheques, passport, cash etc. / wear a money belt.
Bring jumper (sweater, rain coat, pullover, wind-stopper etc.,)
Bring mosquito liquid
Bring protective liquid or cream from sunburn
Bring a special bag or cover for your cameras, as we may climb up to the sand
hill and take some pictures.
- Don’t separate from other members of the group or group leader.

- Don’t make your camera flash while you are riding.
- Don’t wear too bright, loose clothes when horse riding. Mongolian horses are wilder than western horses.
