Mongolia was our Country of the Week. We looked at the land’s long history, including, of course, the renowned conquests of Genghis Khan. See how Mongolia has changed since the days of the Mongol Empire HERE.

In our Travel Guide we set off into the wilds of Mongolia in search of solitude…and we found it! Whether in the steppe, mountains, desert, or forest – you can get away from it all HERE.
