Welcome to our Mongolia Travel Blog

Our Mongolia travel blog is written by Jess – the founder of Eternal Landscapes Mongolia.  This is your informal introduction to our Mongolia.  Use our Mongolia travel blog for inspiration. Dip into it to discover more.

The blog is divided into four sections – Experience, See, Learn, Community.Or, if you’re short on time, every week I put one or a few posts … In The Spotlight.

This week … as part of our ‘be part of a bigger travel philosophy’ Crowdfunding campaign, we are creating a series of free virtual tours introducing you to our Mongolia. As you can’t currently travel to Mongolia, we will bring Mongolia to you. 

Some of the experiences available in Mongolia are probably quite surprising. Use our ‘Experience Mongolia’ blog posts for inspiration.
