Hi Mongolia fans,
We are seriously considering a 3-week trip to Mongolia in July 2010, and I am hoping to get some feedback from people who love the place.
What would you consider the must-see sights, the must-do activities, or the highlights of your trip? What were your favorite places in Mongolia? (We already have some things in mind, of course, but I'm interested to hear from others who've been there.)
If you were forced to choose between a 5-day camping trip in the Altai mountains or 5 days of hanging out at Lake Hovsgol, which would you choose and why?
A little background on us: we are in our late 30s, experienced hikers who want an active vacation, not afraid of roughing it, and we love animals and wildlife as well as cultural sights. I had a horse for 20 years and love to ride... and my husband is less enthusiastic, but a good sport about riding with me. (In other words, we want some horseback riding, but not a multi-day riding trip.) Our favorite trips have been to sub-Saharan Africa, New Zealand, and India. The only part of Asia we've visited so far is India.
Thanks very much for any and all comments or suggestions!
