Geography & Climate

  • Mongolia is a country in Central Asia sandwiched between Russia in the North and China from the South. Mongolia is a mountainous country, but the wide, flat lands dominate. Mountains reach 4.400 m altitude.
  • The most-known mountain range is the Altai in the west. The desert Gobi lies in the south.
  • Due to its geographical position, continental climate dominates: a hot and dry summer, and a very cold and dry winter. The vegetation is mostly bush.

Activities & actual conditions

    • The Altai ranges are prime destinations for ski mountaineers with a spirit for adventures. The best month is March when access roads are passable.
    • The biggest challenge is logistics, bases and in some parts the necessary permits. Transport means are usually off-road vehicles, seldom horses and camels – but all have their limits during the high winter months.

    • The Altai offers mixed climbing in rock, snow and ice. There are many glaciers although mostly small. Consider a long approach, but solitude is guaranteed.
    • Extra permits are necessary for border regions of the Altai.
    • Logistics are much easier from June to September than during the rest of the year.

    • Mongolia and the Altai became a high-valued trekking destination. Tours are supported by horses and off-road vehicles.
    • Several days treks can be done also in every small side valley, up to and along glaciers.
