After an extremely difficult time actually getting to Mongolia due to flight delays, cancellations and terrible ground staff support from Air China, Mongolia Expeditions turned my nightmare into one of the best experiences in my life. Batsuren from the office was in constant contact and went out of his way to ensure that despite my delayed arrival I was able to catch up to the group and have my complete experience. Being very new to mountain climbing is okay because Gangaamaa is the climbing guide for Mongolia Expeditions. Gangaamaa is a Seven Summiteer and has guided mountain expeditions all over the world including the Mount Khuiten trip almost 50 times to date. All in all, everything was perfectly arranged from good hotels, to comfortable tents, fantastic food and good success rate on mountain without compromising on safety. I highly recommend this tour company for anyone visiting Mongolia.

We visited only a part of the country, but the visits to Baga Azar, Tsagaan Suvarga, Yoliin-Am, Khongor Sand dunes, Bayanzag, Ongi Monastery, Orkhon Valley, Karakorum and Hustai NP, were mind-blowing.
We had an excellent guide: Mrs. Uyanga Genendaram: she felt the perfect balance in steering the program and leaving space for indecent activities. Her English was outstanding. When one of the team-members got ill, she did whatever was necessary to movie care and medical assistance.
Our driver was Mr. Tseren: he knew all the roads like his own pocket and drove us Thousands of kilometers through the beautiful landscape of Mongolia: w never felt even one moment unsafe.
We choose for an alternating gas-camp and family stay which turned out to be a good choice since you get closer to the people's real life.
We can only recommend Mongolia Expeditions as a 5-star organization. The trip was worth every cent!

Mongolia travel was an excellent experience.
The coutry's landscape natural beauty and its people.
The hole experience was enhanced with the help of Mongolia Expeditions and its outstanding organization. They prepare a really nice itinerary with very helpful guides. The small details, like good equipment, cars and strong horses made a big difference!

Last August 7 friends and I hired Mongolia Expeditions to guide us on the climb of one of National Geographic's top 10 climbs in the world, Khuiten. All of the staff from ME was awesome. What surprised me was not only how beautiful Mongolia was, and it was beautiful, but how friendly and welcoming the Mongolian people were, beginning with Aldra and the rest of the ME team. They managed every detail from the moment we landed in Ulaanbatar until we flew out again two weeks later. We had a couple of hiccups in logistics which they quickly overcame and had us back on schedule and into the park to see the amazing glacier and eventually climb 3 of the 5 saints. I hope that in my lifetime I am able to carve out time to come back and see Mongolia again and partake in another expedition. When I do it will be with this team. I'm proud of what they're doing for the Mongolian mountaineering and adventure communities and truly grateful they were able to share their amazing country with us.
