Dog sledding

While dogs have always played a crucial part in traditional Mongolian life, the idea of dog sledding is a relatively new idea. With temperatures reached -40 degrees Celsius in winter, Ulaanbaatar is the coldest capital city in the world so making use of dog sleds to get around is both practical and great fun. Guided trips are the best way to experience this method of travel, which is an ideal way to see the landscape and wildlife as well as visit some of the nomadic locals. There is even the chance to cross frozen rivers and lakes to see Mongolia from a unique perspective.
