3 Tips For Your Mongolian Solo Adventure


Deciding to go on a solo adventure is always a good idea. It gives a person some time to reconnect with their true inner self and meet plenty of new people from various cultures.

In case you are wondering whether it is safe to travel to Mongolia alone, you should know that Mongolia is one of the lowest crime-ridden countries for visiting. It has one of the lowest crime rates in all Asia, so you shouldn’t worry about getting in trouble – as long as you use common sense and always play it safe.

However, we can’t predict the future, and we all know anything could happen, especially in a foreign country while you are all alone, so traveling with a travel agency is the best way to visit Mongolia solo. When you go in small groups, there is enough privacy for you to enjoy the adventures all by yourself if you wish to, but there is also enough security coming from having people around you and not being all alone. Traveling in groups usually become like little communities, and the people in it always look out for each other.

Here are three tips for your Mongolian solo adventure:

Make a Bucket List

Mongolia is unique in so many ways: culturally, historically, and geographically. There is so much to see, and you won’t be able to plan an effective trip if you don’t make a bucket list first. With so many opportunities, it’s easy to get overwhelmed in your battle with time simply because there is so much to experience.

Here is a list of things to start with when it comes to creating your bucket list:

  1. Ride a wild horse or a camel in the Gobi desert
  2. Visit Hustai National park to see the only fully feral horses in the world
  3. Meet the “last reindeer people.”
  4. Explore the unique history of ancient Buddhist temples
  5. Randomly stumble upon dinosaur fossils (yes, really!)
  6. Travel on the world’s longest train route, the Trans-Siberian
  7. Push your limits and challenge your strength in the land of temperature extreme

Beware of Dehydration

It’s not uncommon for people to get dehydrated while traveling to Mongolia. When you are traveling alone, you’ve got no one to remind you to stay hydrated, so you are going to have to take this responsibility – and you shouldn’t take it lightly. The climate can sometimes be so hot and dry that you may not even notice you’ve been sweating because the heat absorbs the sweat immediately.

Find the Perfect Tour

Since you’re going on this adventure alone, you don’t have to compromise on traveling details with anyone, which is a significant plus. There are many various tours to choose from, depending on your specific preferences. There are three ways you can travel to Mongolia with our agency:

  1. You can join groups
  2. Create your own departure
  3. You can have the experience tailor made for your unique needs and wishes.

Whether you want to join a Buddhist monasteries group tour or you’re more interested in trekking and hiking, but in your own way, choose a tour that features your desired activities – and don’t forget to have fun!
