Who We Are

Established by Jessica & Turuu in 2010, we’re a small (150 bookings per year) Mongolian registered company and social enterprise driven by a set of ethics and values including making a difference through tourism that doesn’t harm the liveability of Mongolia.   As part of our philosophy, we don’t outsource the logistics of our trips to those already working the tourism circuit. Instead, we want to show that everyone has great potential and so we invest – nurturing our own local operations and providing long-term employment opportunities to those often overlooked by other companies and supporting them in their aim to be the best they can be. This includes our free training programme for Mongolian women who want the opportunity to work in tourism – we’re proud that all of our guides are Mongolian women.

Every trip on our website helps to fund our work and is researched and put together by us – designed to promote and encourage the skills and development of our team as well as to provide long-term support to a range of Mongolian people and families that we work in long-term local community partnership with as well as projects that focus on improving life in Mongolia. We work side by side with each and our experiences are put together in a way that benefits and support each family or project, rather than disrupting their lives or work. These partnerships represent all spectrums of society and help break down the typical tourism stereotypes and clichés of Mongolia. 

Impactful Travel

… our thoughts, campaigns and stories …

As a business working in tourism, we have a responsibility to help combat problems including those created by tourism itself. We believe that travel can and should be a positive experience for both the visitor and for the destination country itself. One of our core values is to produce positive change within Mongolia.

Although we believe travel has to be beneficial to all concerned we also understand that it is not currently beneficial to our planet. But this is not about cancelling international travel but it is about travelling better – travelling in a more conscious way. As an industry, we need to come together and act to make our sector more sustainable. We’ve recognised that we need to be a part of the solution, we need to do our bit and then some.

Our Mongolia Trips And Holidays

We don’t follow the typical stereotypes of a tour company – we have nothing to do with ‘big groups’, ‘must-sees’ or ‘all-inclusive packages’. Instead, the vast ‘eternal landscapes’ of Mongolia and the broader context within which Mongolians live their lives within those landscapes runs deep through everything we do. If you’re looking to experience the real Mongolia as the locals live it then welcome to the community that is EL. True, Mongolia can challenge as much as it beguiles & we ask you to be prepared to face the same irritations and frustrations as the locals do. But if you do, you’ll fall in love with the immensity that is Mongolia. Explore our website for our Mongolia tours, ideas and inspiration. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Just contact Jess by email or phone. We look forward to welcoming you.

Female Travellers Mongolia

Female Travellers (coming soon)

  • 'It remains a stand out adventure - remote, free and with great interaction with the environment and the people. A true adventure, unlike any other. And it was possible thanks to the special way you built EL and tailored our trip. It could easily be much less interesting without your deep relationships with the herders and families.  So thank you for making it a real Mongolian exploration and not just a hover above the surface.'

  • "In terms of experiencing Mongolia we did right to go with EL. We got to experience some of Mongolian life and not just see Mongolia from the “comfort” of our car. We weren’t so much tourists but rather more like friends of friends. So well done and thank you for getting the tour just right for us."

  • "You listened to what we wanted. You showed that you listened to us and have gone that extra mile for us – things that you don’t get on other tours. From an organisational perspective everything was excellent – great itinerary, built in flexibility, elements of surprise, relaxing, informative and enjoyable."

  • "The caring for us, the locals and the environment is not something we see a lot of. A lot of times the caring to locals is a low priority, if at all. Sometimes all the company cares about is the profits and the will to satisfy the clients beats the locals. In our trip we found a unique combination where all parties are taken care of in a perfect way."

  • "From the start, I've been very impressed with the honesty and the quality of the information. It was very clear what this travel experience would not be, and what it would try to be (without any guarantees and thus false promises). It felt very personal. The approach to travelling was refreshing and I really appreciated it: showing the ‘real’ Mongolia, without any pretence."
