Big Earth Mongolia
Mongolia is a landlocked country in East and Central Asia. It is bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, east and west. Although Mongolia does not share a border with Kazakhstan, its western-most point is only 38 kilometres (24 mi) from Kazakhstan’s eastern tip. Ulan Bator, the capital and largest city, is home to about 45% of the population. Mongolia’s political system is a parliamentary republic.
At 1,564,116 square kilometres (603,909 sq mi), Mongolia is the 19th largest and the most sparsely populated independent country in the world, with a population of around 2.75 million people. It is also the world’s second-largest landlocked country after Kazakhstan. The country contains very little arable land, as much of its area is covered by steppes, with mountains to the north and west and the Gobi Desert to the south. Approximately 30% of the population are nomadic or semi-nomadic.
Our favourite Mongolia adventure is; ‘Mongolia by Furgon Truck,’ something Russ Malkin experienced whilst filming the hit television series ‘The Long Way Round’, with Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. For this adventure and more, check out the site.
