Be part of a bigger travel philosophy
At Eternal Landscapes Mongolia we have a collective purpose and we’re not motivated by profit or by trying to be number one on TripAdvisor. We’re a small and personal Mongolian registered company and social travel enterprise driven by a set of ethics and values including tourism that doesn’t harm the liveability of Mongolia. We work in long-term local community partnership with a network of Mongolians and local Mongolian projects – representing all spectrums of society. We’re proud of our commitment to making a positive difference in Mongolia through our Mongolia trips and experiences and to breaking down typical tourism stereotypes and clichés of Mongolia. As part of our philosophy of making a difference, we don’t employ the best. Instead, we want to show that everyone has great potential, a fact reflected in the free training and support programme we provide and the employment opportunities we create to those that want the opportunity to work in tourism and who want to aim to be the best they can be. We invite you to be part of this bigger travel philosophy.
- For more on the impact of the coronavirus on travel to Mongolia and what measures we are putting in place as a team and community see our dedicated coronavirus webpage (link).
- For those interested in travelling with us in 2020, we are applying a wait and see policy rather than cancelling trips but there are more details on our dedicated page (link). For details on our 2021 small group experiences see here (link).
- We’ve updated our booking conditions (until the end of 2021) to be more flexible and we are keeping 2020 prices through 2021. For more details click the ‘We’re keeping 2021 at 2020 prices’ box on our Coronavirus page (link).
- We’re putting in place our ‘Everyone Travels Safely’ strategy so that when Mongolia does open its borders again, everyone from our team to our guests and host families knows they can travel and work safely. We’ll publish details when it is ready.
- Like all storms it will pass but until it does we’re creating a hardship fund to help support the network of Mongolian people, families and projects that we work in long-term local community partnership with and that have been impacted by Covid-19.

Experience Mongolia With Us
Three videos created by our guests showcasing experiences created by us.
‘Under A Mongolian Sky’ – living alongside the Kazakh eagle hunters we work in long-term local community partnership with.
Travel through Mongolia’s Darkhad Depression – where the Darkhad and the Tsaatan reindeer herders make their home.
We promote low season travel. These are the landscapes of the central heartland and northern Mongolia captured in April.
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.
Our Mongolia Trips And Holidays
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.'
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
"Thank you and your team for everything you've done for us, I sincerely appreciate your efforts and feel lucky to have known you all. Keep it up." Eirini Sperelaki, Small group 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
"Keep at it Jess.......you have great things going. EL is right up there with my favourite small companies (the principals of which have become close friends)." -Pat Blamey, Winter tour - Tsagaan Sar Insight
"It honestly was a once in a lifetime trip. It was such a unique experience and learning experience. It was an incredible experience and everyone that was apart of the company made us feel welcomed like family." - Rachel Hirsh, Winter tour - Hunting With Eagles
