During breakfast on board, you watch the taiga mountain landscapes of northern Mongolia and its scattered nomad settlements from your window. In the morning, you reach Ulan Bator, where porters are already waiting to help with your luggage, and head to your centrally located mid-range hotel. On this first night in Ulan Bator, you also have the chance to spend the night in a heated yurt—bookable in advance—amid majestic and unspoiled natural surroundings, a truly unique experience! In the afternoon, you visit the Mongolian National History Museum. If you choose to spend the night in the hotel, you have the opportunity to watch a Mongolian folk performance, featuring throat singing, national costumes, dances, and the horsehead fiddle—the morin khuur—a symbol of the Mongolian nation. Tickets are €14/$15, to be paid on site. If you decide to spend the night in a heated yurt, you can enjoy Mongolian folk tales by the campfire.
