Be part of a bigger travel philosophy

We’re not driven by profit or by trying to be number one on TripAdvisor. We’re a small and personal Mongolian registered company working in long-term local community partnership with rural families. We’re proud of our commitment to making a positive difference in Mongolia through our Mongolia trips and experiences and to breaking typical tourism stereotypes and clichés of Mongolia. As part of our philosophy of making a difference, we don’t employ the best. Instead, we provide training and support to those that want the opportunity to aim to be the best they can be. We invite you to be part of this bigger philosophy.

No tight schedules. No tick it off the list travel. No 'must see' highlights. Our Mongolia trips and experiences offer flexibility and a more genuine and personal introduction to Mongolia.

We're not a ‘world specialist.' We concentrate on the country we know and love – Mongolia. We are proudly independent and research, design and operate all aspects of the Mongolia trips and experiences we offer. We do not source our itineraries from other agents.

No contrived experiences. We are working towards a long-term local community partnership with the local people of Mongolia. We get to know them – to learn about their lives and their needs – without being invasive. These are real people with real lives to lead.

Eternal Landscapes Trip Assistants - Mongolia

We provide free training and development opportunities to Mongolian women that want to work in tourism but other companies won't take as they don't fit the stereotype or have the professional qualifications. Our female Mongolian trip assistants are dynamic women who are searching for an opportunity to learn and develop and we provide that long-term opportunity.

We promote low season travel. Why? Its a more sustainable approach. It's also a major part of our responsible tourism philosophy but this isn’t a case of lip service or ticking boxes. Our philosophy helps create positive social change in Mongolia.

No sterotypes. We offer 21st Century Mongolia through the eyes of those that call it home whether they be herders, musicians, teachers, philanthropists or Kazakh eagle hunters.We're trying to break down the preconceptions of Mongolia.

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. So 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. But be prepared to face the same irritations and frustrations as the locals do and you'll fall in love with the immensity that is Mongolia.

  • '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.'

    Ben Kidron and family, Winter 2018

     
  • "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."

    Maria Seele, South Africa

  • "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." 

    Paul Williams and Mandy Wong, UK and Australia.

  • "The flexibility of it all makes it a refreshing trip, creating memorable experiences. It was a truly good way to travel. Honest, sincere, reliable and you deliver."

    Hui Wyn Ong and Hui Li Lim, Singapore

  •  "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." Sagi Bar Or - private trekking trip
  • "You organised and delivered a fantastic mix of trips. Who’d have thought Mongolia could offer such a mix over winter? A wonderful trip.Your vision and offerings are both laudable and outstanding and a reflection of your values." Viv and Pete McWaters, Extended Winter tour, returning EL guests
  • "I would recommend EL without hesitation. The values of the company. The staff. The product. The care. The itineraries. All excellent."   Jane McNab - private group trekking trip
  • "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." Sophie Van der Hert - small group tour

    'Why did I choose this company?.... Because for me they have ethics and policies that support the people and the country as well as making sure that you get what you want. Nothing was too much trouble and transparency and clarity were paramount.' Lesley Jackson, Private / Tailor made tour

    'It's an extremely difficult balancing act to offer tourists an 'authentic' yet 'entertaining' experience but I think you did very well. We never felt like we were imposing or getting in the way. In a way, it felt more like were visiting friends of friends.' Diarmuid Carter, Private / Tailor Made Tour
