Mongolia is a beautiful country, but it is very isolated as it is landlocked between two
vast countries, Russia and China, and a large part of it is very inhospitable, with the
Gobi desert in the south and vast cold mountainous areas in the north.

Mongolia is the sparceliest populated country on Earth, due to the harsh conditions

Mongolia is the sparceliest populated country on Earth, due to the harsh conditions

The rest of Mongolia consists mainly of the Steppes, which are flat and arid grassland plains with
some extreme weather, from very hot in the summer 40 °C (104 °F), to very cold in
the winter, down to as much as -40 °C (-40 °F). However this inhospitable and
diverse scenery is also truly magnificent, and much of it still remains completely
unspoilt by imposing modern necessities such as roads, traffic and urban
developments. Mongolia does have some cities and large towns, but outside of
these areas the traditional nomadic way of life still prevails, mainly because it is the
only successful way to exist in these extreme terrains and conditions.
