Responsible & Sustainable Tourism

Sustainable tourism

Mongolian Travel strives to increase cultural and environmental awareness. From the very beginning, we have placed the utmost importance on cultural and the environmental preservation through our leadership and environmental stewardship. We believe that responsible tourism is the best way to promote and respect the local environment and culture. All of our tours are specially designed to give travelers the experience of interacting with local nomads. Our ancestors taught us to have a deep respect for the environment because they believed every object in nature is precious. With that same respect, we conduct our business with environmentally sensitivity, especially in our national parks and wildlife reserves. By establishing positive partnership with the local communities, we are better able to promote our beautiful country to visitors. This unique partnership inspires greater growth for all parties involves. For example, we obtain as money of our products and services from local nomads as possible. This includes hiring local guides and wranglers; renting horses, camels and yaks; buying meats and dairy products; and supporting local artisans. Traveling with us will support nomads in the rural areas and contribute to their livelihoods as herders in the countryside. We encourage our clients to be active participants and supporters by following responsible, green, and travel smart principles.
