Mongolia is a lesser explored country in the Central Asian continent. It is a pristine picturesque natural setting that has very little human presence and is one of the best places for you and your children to get away from the bustling metropolitan.
“Culturally, Mongolia is the opposite of what most kids have back home – no electricity, no internet, no phone or screens. Removing them from all of their creature comforts is an incredible learning curve and they’ll find everything about the nomadic culture even more captivating without the distractions that are already available in their lives back home.”
