While you in Mongolia with your kids food could be an issue in rural areas. In remote areas, it is not easy to find meals that your kids’ love, restaurants in ger camps mainly served Mongolian dished based on meat. Therefore we recommend bringing snacks or cookies that you kids love to eat.

Another disadvantage is a long drive and a poor road.  To make your kids happy would recommend bringing colouring books or toys or sporting items that able to play during drive-breaks. For example Frisbee and soccer ball.

Weather of the country is not predictable, therefore I advise to bring warm clothes, comfortable shoes for the walk and extra socks.

Recommended activities for kids:


Archery lesson: Besides physical exercise, it will be a great way to inspire your kids to learn about the history of Chinggis Khaan and his army.  The history of archery in Mongolia dates back to the Stone Age and progressed through the Bronze Age when the composite bow was introduced.  In the 13th century, the skill of Mongolian archers and the design of the bow reached its peak, and it served as the main weapon in Chinggis Khaan’s conquest of much of the known world. It was used as an everyday tool for hunting and was an inseparable part of Nomadic life. 

Horse riding: Nomadic children start riding a horse at their age of 3 or 4. That’s why other people named nation was born on the horseback. This activity will help you, children, to get closer to nature and to become confident with themselves. Are you thinking about their riding skill? No worry our skillful horse riding guides will help to learn.

Hiking or walking: In the remote but beautiful steppe of untouched wilderness, traveller kids can feel a freedom of walking across the land without a fence.

Nomadic homestay: If you visit the nomad family, you would have too many questions why or how do they do this way? To get an answer to your questions or broaden knowledge about the nomadic way of living based on nature, stay with nomads for a few days.
