There are a variety of historic sites and ruins, including monuments, monasteries and temples of outstanding cultural value. The Orkhon Valley bears an exceptional testimony of the existence of human beings in Central Asia. Departure Time & Place Tour departure times can be flexible, however, 8 am on the morning of departure is recommended. The driver and guide can pick you up from the airport, train station, or your accommodation to suit your requirements. Accommodation As a Mongolian company we prefer to support Nomadic families financially, and help support their livelihoods. We are sure this resonates with our travellers who enjoy engaging with their culture on The Steppe. It is therefore our preference to stay with these families if they have an extra Ger. As well as directly supporting local herders, you can experience this rich traditional way of life first hand.
