Summer came to Mongolia last week, conveniently timed with a long weekend. By Friday it was HOT, up to 30C/88F, so we were ready for our first visit to a Mongolian ger camp. (I think I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s a ger, not a yurt here.) We went to the beautiful Mongolian Secret History Camp and stayed in the ger above.
After lunch, we took our pasty, urban selves off for a hike. Most of the landscape we’ve seen so far has been wide-open hills, so it was definitely a novelty to walk in the woods. Aspen were everywhere, punctuated by pine trees.
