WHEN TO TRAVEL:
Mongolia’s climate is continental and extreme. With more than two hundred days of full sun per year it has been given the nickname of ‘the’ Country of Blue Skies’.
The tourist season in Mongolia is between the months of May and September. The weather during this time varies considerably from region to region. The highest rainfall period is in July and August, however, there are still days of glorious sunshine during this time.
Most travelers come to Mongolia in mid July for the annual National Naadam Festival. The Gobi usually has the hottest temperatures. Summer evenings in the Gobi can be cool because of Mongolia's high altitude.The best time to visit the Gobi is June and September. The spring is a time of strong winds, especially difficult in the sandy areas of the Gobi.
