Join this female only female-led experience that we have designed to allow you as a female traveller a unique opportunity to discover the challenges and lives of local women in Mongolia through a range of experiences.
Do a Google search for ‘solo female travel’ and 206,000,000 results (as of November 2019) pop up and Google Trends reflects a growing interest in solo female travel experiences. But trends are not the reason we decided to offer our own Mongolia female only tour experience. Nor is it about ticking the box for equality or diversity. And, unlike most women only experiences, we haven’t just replicated standard tour itineraries and just made them female only. Instead, we have designed our Mongolia women only tour experience to allow our female travellers a unique opportunity to discover the challenges and lives of local women in Mongolia that we work in long-term local community partnership with as well as experiencing the lives of the female members of our EL team through a range of experiences.
The Philosophy Behind Our Mongolia Women Only Tour Experience
As a female business owner, it is important to me to use my skills and influence to improve the prospects for other women. An integral part of our business philosophy is empowering women through travel and tourism and we do that by providing free training and development opportunities as well as long-term employment options to Mongolian women that want the opportunity to work in tourism (whether that be for a professional reason, for development of personal skills or for economic empowerment). Our Mongolia women only tour experience will be led by one of our brilliant female Mongolian trip assistants (guides) providing you with a more personal introduction to Mongolia as you travel with someone who not only sincerely loves their home country but loves the moments that travel brings.
Our Mongolia women only tour is a tailor-made trip – designed to give you an insight into the diversity of the way of life for Mongolian women in the 21st Century. It is customisable – giving you the freedom to build a unique and personal trip for your chosen dates. The linked trip gives you an idea but we give you the flexibility to upgrade your accommodation for all – or just part – of your trip, slow down the pace with a few extra nights here and there or add a few more active adventures along the way with mountain biking in the middle Gobi or trekking in western Mongolia or even adding in a different location. At each step of the experience you’ll be hosted by women that we work in long-term local community partnership with. These are our own personal friendships.
Experiencing Mongolia from a woman’s perspective will surprise you. Women in Mongolia typically enjoy equality with men and traditionally have had higher social status and greater autonomy than women in some other Asian countries. During this experience, you’ll soon understand the breadth and depth of the careers and lives of women in Mongolia as you experience their daily lives side by side with them. This is the Mongolia they don’t cover in the guidebooks.
