PACKING LISTS

Your packing list for a trip to Mongolia will vary based on the type of tour you're taking, the length of your stay, the region you're visiting, and the time of year.

We recommend traveling as lightly as possible, particularly if your tour includes domestic flights, trekking, or horseback riding. Keep in mind that the luggage limit for domestic flights is 15 kg, which includes your handbag.

If you exceed this limit, you'll be charged an extra fee of 2-3 USD per kilogram, depending on your destination. However, if you're staying in a hotel, you may be able to leave some of your belongings behind if they're not essential for your countryside trip.

CLASSIC TOUR PACKING LIST

  • Bringing washable clothes is the most convenient as you will not have much time to get the laundry service during your day-by-day moving travel

  • A torch/headlamp will be practical when going to the bathrooms in the evenings and at night at ger camps.

  • Windproof/waterproof lightweight jacket at the end of June, July, and the first half of August. Please bring a warm windproof/waterproof jacket (suitable minimum -8°C) in May, the first half of June, the last half of August, September, and October. You better have a warm jacket even in the summer months if you travel to the western and northern mountainous parts of Mongolia.

  • Zip-off lightweight travel trousers would be ideal for most summer days, and better to have layers of trousers to keep you warm.

  • T-shirts (long-sleeve T-shirts protect your arms from the sun and help you stay warm)

  • A fleece jacket/sweatshirt could be handy when the weather cools down.

  • Woolen hats, gloves, scarf, and layers of undergarments help you stay warm in spring and autumn (the last half of August through the first half of June).

  • Waterproof walking boots are suitable throughout the year, and a sturdy pair of walking sandals when walking around ger camps. Some ger camps do not have slippers in their gers.

  • Pajamas/tights help you to stay warm at night.

  • Shorts and other suitable clothes for warm weather up to +38°C during the daytime. The evening/night temperature drops to +8 to + 18°C after the +38°C warm day. Please consider the temperature fluctuation on the same day.

  • Bringing your eyeglasses is preferable instead of lenses on dusty roads, during spring and autumn occasional storms.

  • Sun cream, lip balm, sunglasses, and a sunhat are vital.

  • Insect repellent

  • Some pills for common symptoms you may have while traveling. Pill recommendations are travel sickness pills, allergy pills (there is a vast expanse of grasslands), Pepto-Bismol for the inevitable upset stomach, and Antibiotic cream for cuts, scratches, and insect bites. Please carry the pill in the original package and clearly labeled container in your handbag.

  • The backpack is ideal. Rolling suitcases are suitable, but some ger camp paths are not even and stony to pull them

  • Comfortable shoulder strap day pack

  • Shampoo, soap, lotions, deodorant, and toothpaste are all available extensively in Ulaanbaatar. However, they are not available at some ger camps and during camping.

  • Towel, dry/wet tissues, and hand sanitizer will not go wrong when having picnic meals in the countryside and when nature calls you along the way. Ger camps provide small and large towels. But not the nomads if your itinerary includes a nomadic family stay.

  • Travel and medical insurance, passport, and other documents.

  • Camera with a spare battery or with a mobile charger.

  • Power bank - please check the power bank capacity allowance with your airlines, and put them in your carry-on bags.

  • Cables and adaptors for charging phones, cameras, and tabs.

  • Ziploc plastic bags help you protect your documents, phone, money, camera, binoculars, and other items from wetness, sand, and dust.

  • Small gifts for nomad children if you do not mind. Visiting nomads and learning about this unique culture is an inseparable and experiential part of our trips. Expressing thanks for your sudden and uninformed visits to nomads and their hospitality is a nice feeling for either of you. Giving little gifts to the nomads is not a must and is up to you. Candies are an ideal gift for both children and adults to keep things simple. Other gift ideas are small toys, hair ribbons, children’s books, educational materials, paper, and pencils. Sewing kits, face or hand cream, cigarettes, cigar-related items, or snuff tobacco for adults.
