Mongolian winter tours

Winter in Mongolia is a unique and enchanting experience. While it can be extremely cold, with temperatures dropping well below freezing, it offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to witness the country’s stunning landscapes in a completely different light. Here are some key aspects to consider when planning a winter trip to Mongolia:

Winter in Mongolia typically lasts from November to March, with temperatures reaching as low as -40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas. It’s essential to pack warm clothing, including thermal layers, insulated jackets, hats, gloves, scarves, and sturdy boots. Don’t forget to bring lip balm, moisturizer, and sunscreen to combat the dry and harsh climate.

Winter Festivals:

Explore the lively winter festivals that take place across the country during this season. The most famous is the Ice Festival in Khuvsgul Lake, where locals gather to showcase ice sculptures, participate in traditional winter games, and offer cultural performances. The Camel Festival in the Gobi Desert is another thrilling event that features camel races, traditional competitions, and local music and dance.

Winter Sports:

Mongolia’s vast snowy landscapes offer excellent opportunities for winter sports enthusiasts. Experience the thrill of skiing or snowboarding in the pristine mountains of Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, Bogd Khan Mountain, or the Altai Mountains. Some accommodations and travel agencies offer equipment rental and lessons for beginners.

Pristine Nature:

Winter unveils Mongolia’s natural beauty in a unique way. The landscapes are blanketed in sparkling white snow, creating a magical atmosphere. Head to Terelj National Park or Hustai National Park for breathtaking winter scenery and the chance to spot elusive wildlife like snow leopards, wild horses, and reindeer.

Nomadic Culture:

Winter is an excellent time to immerse yourself in Mongolia’s nomadic culture. Stay in traditional ger (yurt) camps and experience the warmth and hospitality of the nomadic communities. You can learn about their lifestyle, help with daily tasks such as herding animals, or enjoy storytelling and traditional Mongolian cuisine around a cozy fire.

Ice Fishing and sleigh rides:

Try your hand at ice fishing on frozen lakes and rivers. Experienced local guides can assist you in setting up the traditional ice fishing equipment and teach you the techniques. You can also enjoy sleigh rides pulled by horses or reindeer, a delightful way to explore the winter landscapes.

Stargazing and Northern Lights:

The clear winter skies in Mongolia offer a fantastic opportunity for stargazing and, if you’re lucky, witnessing the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. Head away from city lights to remote locations like the Gobi Desert or the pristine plains of the Mongolian countryside for optimal visibility.

Remember to plan your winter trip to Mongolia carefully, taking into account safety considerations and the availability of services and accommodations in more remote regions. With proper preparation, winter in Mongolia can be an extraordinary adventure filled with unique experiences and breathtaking scenery.

Here is the best winter tour packages that you can do in Mongolia

Experience the World’s Coldest Capital During this Ulaanbaatar Winter Tour

Let us custom curate your perfect Ulaanbaatar winter itinerary now. Starting at $150 USD, local guide included.

Breanna Wilson Mongolia Travel Expert

Live with an Eagle Hunter Family During this Eagle Festival Tour 2024

Table of contents.

Ulaanbaatar is known as the world’s coldest capital thanks to reaching temperatures of −36 to −40 °C come winter in Mongolia . That’s colder than Moscow, Astana, Reykjavik, Helsinki, Tallin, and Ottawa, all notoriously cold and much more well-known cities, to claim the title.

It’s also what makes visiting Mongolia from November to March a rite of passage. If you’re one of those dark tourism seekers, looking for the type of travel experience that’s so hardcore it’s not for everyone, Mongolia is for you. Anyone can travel here in summer, but chances are you’ll be the first of your friends, or anyone you’ll ever meet, probably ever, to say they’ve been here in winter.

All that being said, winter in Mongolia is still an amazing time to visit . There are still plenty of incredible things to do and see in the city, people still fill the streets, there are less crowds at museums and popular tourist attractions, and hotel rates are at their cheapest.

You can also find guides and translators as well as drivers much more easily and you’ll be more likely to be able to negotiate rates. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out my guide on what to budget for a trip to Mongolia .

Despite the extremely cold temperatures, experience the warm hospitality Mongolia is known for by heading out on this Ulaanbaatar Winter Tour .

The price to book this Ulaanbaatar Winter Tour starts at $150 USD per person with a two person booking minimum, and dependent on the final itinerary curated.

This day tour is custom curated based on interests and availability. Visit museums and monasteries , take a Mongolian painting class and choose to end your day at a cultural show , the opera , or ballet .

What’s Included in this Ulaanbaatar Winter Tour

Each city tour is custom curated to your interests. While this tour includes museum visits, a private art class, and cultural show in the evening, please note that these experiences are based on availability.

No matter what your itinerary includes, highlights of this day tour include:

  • Experience a day exploring the world’s coldest capital city with a local guide for the day . This will mostly be a walking tour , however taxis will be provided when necessary.
  • Discover modern Mongolia by meeting the local people and experiencing its culture, history, and art .
  • Warm up with a hot meal at one of the city’s best restaurants for lunch . (Meal costs are not included in the price and will be paid individually.)

  • Begin to understand how Mongolia’s path to democracy was shaped after the fall of the Soviet Union .

This winter tour is available from November to March.

We kindly ask that you keep in mind Mongolia is just starting to understand the importance of winter tourism. Museums have shorter opening hours, cultural shows and experiences are not scheduled daily (like they are in the summer), and traffic may cause delays in getting around the city.

We will do our best to curate a seamless experience that highlights what life in Ulaanbaatar is really like, for better or worse.

Temperature and Tips for Visiting the World’s Coldest Capital

Traveling to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in the winter can be a unique and exciting experience, but it’s important to be prepared for the extremely cold weather. Here’s what you can expect in terms of temperature, weather, and how to dress.

Ulaanbaatar City Tour

Temperature and Weather

  • Extreme Cold : Ulaanbaatar experiences severe winters, with temperatures often dropping well below freezing. The winter months typically span from November to March.
  • Average Temperatures : During the winter, daytime temperatures can range from -10°C to -20°C (14°F to -4°F). However, it’s not uncommon for temperatures to plummet even further, reaching -30°C (-22°F) or lower, especially in the evenings.
  • Snow : Expect significant snowfall throughout the winter months, which can create a picturesque cityscape but also make walking in the city more challenging. Please wear appropriate shoes with traction made for walking on slippery and wet surfaces.
  • Short Daylight Hours : Winter in Ulaanbaatar is characterized by short daylight hours, with the sun rising late in the morning (9 am) and setting early in the afternoon (4 pm).

What to Wear

  • Layering : Layering is key to staying warm in Mongolia’s harsh winter. Start with thermal or woolen base layers to trap body heat. Add insulating layers like sweaters and down jackets.
  • Warm Coat : Invest in a high-quality, insulated winter coat that covers your body and has a hood to protect your head from wind and snow.
  • Accessories : Wear a warm hat that covers your ears, as well as gloves or mittens to protect your hands. A scarf or neck gaiter can help keep your neck and face warm.
  • Footwear : Insulated, waterproof boots with good traction are essential to keep your feet warm and dry in the snow.
  • Thermal Underwear : Thermal leggings and long underwear are a must to keep your legs warm.
  • Thick Socks : Opt for thick, woolen socks to keep your feet warm.
  • Protective Clothing : It’s essential to protect exposed skin from frostbite. Be diligent in covering up, especially in extreme cold.
  • Mongolia’s air pollution is notoriously bad in the winter. Pack KN95 face masks to help you breathe better when walking through the city.
  • Keep your electronics, camera, and phone protected from the cold, as extreme temperatures can drain batteries quickly.
  • HotHands hand and foot warmers  are always a good idea to have with you.
  • Be prepared for the possibility of flight and transportation delays due to weather conditions, especially if you’re traveling to more congested areas of the city center.

By dressing warmly in layers and being prepared for the cold and snow, you can enjoy a memorable winter trip to Ulaanbaatar, and fully experience the unique charm of the city during this season.

We absolutely LOVED our 5 day trip to Mongolia, spending a day in the city of Ulaan Bator before heading out was wonderful, but nothing beat the Nomadic family homestays & two-hump camel ride through the mini Gobi!! October is a little chilly, with even a bit of snow, but was totally worth going in the tourist "low season" as we had every place all to ourselves and it was so peaceful, quiet, and stunningly beautiful.

On this tour I was given the opportunity to se many amazing sights with the best professional Tour Director Bolormaa and Cultural and Language Interpreter Enkhbaatar. I was given many opportunities to see and learn about the customs and culture of Mongolia. During this tour we saw an abundance of local flora and fauna. The beauty of the national parks we visited was amazing. I would like to give special thanks to Enkbaatar and Bolormaa for making my tour such a immersive experience. The personal interactions made feel valued and very welcome. In my heart I now have two new friends in Mongolia. I now feel compelled to return again to continue my exploration of this beautiful country. Thanks Enkbaatar and Bolorma for the wonderful experience.

Treasures of Mongolia/OCT-MAY/ Tour

Treasures of Mongolia/OCT-MAY/

Booked during the Mongolian spring April which is a quiet time for tourism, I ended up being the only one on the tour. Appreciated the quiet and no crowds at all the tourist spots. I enjoyed Spring weather, it was very cold so no bugs and snow on a few days. My guide, driver and host families were very hospitable. Throughly enjoyed the tour, good variety of authentic food and interesting locations. Only complaints would be that traffic sucks in Ulanbataar so try to pick a hotel further away from the CBD and the lack of air conditioning in minivan. It may not be all their vans. It wasn't an issue for me since it was cold, but may be annoying in summer.

The tour was excellent in all aspects. Due to logistics, we had to adjust our travel times slightly and Mendee, at Tour Mongolia, was very helpful in making suggestions and the necessary changes. He went a step further in helping us arrange PCR tests that we needed for our next destination. He even brought the test results to our hotel! The 3-day tour was perfect: good vehicle, knowledgeable and friendly guide (Mendee) and driver, and a good combination of experiences to let us get a good sense of Mongolia's nomadic lifestyle, and also understand a bit about modern-day Mongolia and life in Ulaanbaatar. Our tour was with family stays - and even though it is a bit more rustic than staying at tourist camps, we DEFINITELY recommend this to get a real sense of the nomas lifestyle and experience true Mongolian hospitality. We would never trade that for a warm shower! Eating a real Mongolian barbecue, helping with some of the household chores and sharing candy with an adorable your child, were UNBEATABLE experience. Of course, the barren, awe-inspiring landscapes were just the icing on the cake. It is harder to think of how impactful and wonderful of an experience one cn have in three days! Memories for life!! Thank you Tour Mongolia, Mendee, and Mongolia!!!!!!!!!!!!

What people love about mongolia tours in winter.

Excellent itinerary, excellent guide, excellent driver. Mongolia’s a great destination.
The tour was very well prepared and the company - Active Adventure Tours - seemed to be very reliable. We felt safe with the guide Mergen and th driver Chimedee. Chimedee was very nice, helpful and carrying. Everyday he prepared delicious coffee for us, even in the middle of nowhere. We felt lucky to travel with him. Altogether the travel was marvellous, breathtaking. The most moving was the stay with local family. We were lucky to travel as a couple only - then we were just a part of Mongolian yak keeping farmer family. We tried to milk yaks, ride horses, make local food and alkohol. That was just heart-moving. We enjoyed all the minute in Mongolia. We were also satisfied with food (vegetarian) and accommodation (some of gyr camps were better, some worse - usually if the gyrs were worse, the bathrooms were excellent and the other way round).

If you are unable to visit the festivals below, you can choose from our tours in below.

We offer you the following programs to participate the main winter festivals.

When should I visit?

To see the Gobi camel festival, Khuvsgul Lake ice festival & Ulaanbaatar eagle hunting festivals, plan your trip through March. Mongolians love to throw winter festivals, so consider planning your trip to coincide with big events. Undoubtedly, the most exciting time to visit Gobi is from 05 Mar – 08 Mar. That’s when Mongolians come out in droves to celebrate winter during the 2-day Gobi camel festival. It features camel races and numerous community activities, including ger assembly competition , the most stunning looking couple with camels, and team camel carawan competition etc.

What Can I Do?

Contrary to popular belief, we’re not confined by the cold or shorter days. Winter brings festivals, dog sledding tours, winter biking, gorgeous scenery, ice skating, bonfires, ice fishing, dining, and shopping. You can even take advantage of the longer nights to ski by moonlight, enjoy a bonfire on the beach, or watch for the mysterious sky. Visit our winter activities page for our full list of recommendations.

What About the Cold?

Temperatures in South & Central Mongolia are no more extreme than other parts of Mongolia, averaging 20 degrees.

Isn’t It Dark?

We get 6-12 hours of daylight in the winter, depending on where you are, but the sun setting doesn’t mean your day is done. Bottom line: your day can start as early, or go as late, as you’d like! Find out when the sun will rise and set during your Mongolia trip using the Mongolia.org Sunrise/Sunset Calculator.

Is Winter Expensive?

You can book lodging for more than 50% off of summer rates, and you can get great deals on many tours.

Where to stay?

You’ll spend most nights in a ger – warming yourself by the stove. We’ll make a nice warm fire in your ger before you head to bed, and we’ll provide plenty of wood so you can keep the fire going as you wish, although you will find that traditional Mongolian gers provide excellent insulation so hold heat extremely well. We will also make sure that in the morning you wake up to a nice warm ger!

Winter clothing?

If you have the cash and baggage space we would say stock up here, as the clothes are both awesome and cheap. Of course you’ll need enough to get by till then. As well as, for all of our winter trips, we provide traditional felt boots and can provide winter deel, a traditional long cloth, as well if you wish.

Khustain Nuruu National Park

Today we will drive to the Khustain Nuruu National Park, 130 kilometers outside of Ulaanbaatar.

The Przewalski’s Horse is a rare and endangered subspecies of wild horse found in Central Asia’s steppes, also known as the Takhi horse. It has been reintroduced to its natural habitat in Mongolia, where it was once extinct in the wild. In 1993, Khustain Nuruu National Park was designated as a reserve, but in 1998, it was upgraded to a national park. In the park today, there are approximately 350 Takhi horses. There are 459 vascular plant species and 217 bird species in the park.

We will meet the park staff and be introduced to the project after arriving at the Khustain Nuruu National Park camp. In the afternoon, we’ll discover the park’s natural wonders by jeep, foot, or horseback.

Winter Mongolia

Gorkhi – Terelj National Park

We’ll leave in the morning to the direction of Terelj National park, located 70 km from the capital and travel through a valley surrounded on all sides by forested hillsides and stunning granite cliffs. The park with its granite rocks, pine trees and river is a picturesque area that is perfect for hiking, horse riding or just sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the view. We will visit several sightseeing places in the area. The Genghis Khan Monument will be our first stop. The latter is a massive aluminium statue of Genghis Khan mounted on his horse. It is possible to ascend to the top of the monument, where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. A small museum provides a thorough overview of the history of the Great Mongol Empire, including the succession lines of the great Khans and their invasions. We will visit Turtle Rock and the Aryaval Monastery, a small meditation monastery at the foot of the mountain. There are good possibilities for hiking, climbing and horseback riding.

Terelj National Park

Dog Sledding

After breakfast we will go on an epic adventure. You will speed on a glimmering frozen river, sitting on a sled that is being pulled by some of the most powerful creatures. Although later introduced to Mongolia now it is a national obsession and weekend favourite activity for citizens of the capital. It became the most popular winter attraction. This trip offers a real winter experience most people only dream of: the exhilarating dog sledding ride, sweeping beautiful, magical, spectacular winter landscapes and first-hand stories and experiences from guides and locals. Before starting there will be time to socialize and take pictures with dogs. Tour is led by a guide who steers the sled. You will slide for approximately 2 hours through frozen, snowy landscape. Halfway through your journey we will make a short stop so that you can enjoy nature, take some great photos and give the dogs good belly rubs. In the afternoon we will explore more of the winter beauty on a horseback riding tour. 

Dog Sledding Mongolia

Zuunmod/ Manzushir Monastery to Ulaanbaatar

Zuunmod, the capital of Tov province, will be our first stop. We will arrive in the center of this small administrative town after an hour of driving.

We’ll carry on to Manzushir Monastery from here. The monastery is situated on Bogd Khan Mountain, 8 kilometers from Zuunmod. The scenery is lovely and quiet, with rolling hills covered in pine and cedar trees. Granite formations surround the landscape, giving it a magical feel.

In 1733, Manzushir Monastery was established, with more than 20 temples and 350 monks. Unfortunately, it was destroyed during the 1937 Stalinist purges. The main temple has been rebuilt and turned into a museum, but the area’s other structures are still in ruins.

We’ll spend the afternoon hiking around the ruins and through the Bogd Khan Mountain after learning about the monastery and its secrets. The courageous will climb the hill behind the main monastery to take in the magnificent view of the valley. The monastery looks out over a lovely valley oak, birch, and cedar trees, and granite boulders strewn around.

We’ll return to Ulaanbaatar at the end of the day.

thanks to Nomadic Trails. Tulga and everyone on his team were so accommodating to any of our requests and even helped us navigate our way through the local market and barter for souvenirs. Truly delicious food as well at every stop. Phenomenal all around. Thank y’all for everything! Unbelievable experience in Mongolia!

Tulga, our tour guide is very knowledgeable and helpful, his driving skills also worth a praise and believe me, on these roads, it is a big advantage for someone like me with a motion sickness. They provided a cook for us, who exceeded all of our expectations. If you want a truly amazing experience just go with them!

and he was able to provide a varied, personal, unique experience. I wanted to create my own personal itinerary and Tulga had the knowledge, contacts, experience and sense of adventure to make that happen. I’ll be returning in 2020 to travel with Nomadic Trails again. Can’t wait!

hopping on our horses to go to the Tsaatan reindeer tribe, then finally staying at one of the best camps in Murun. Everything was so well-organized. Noteworthy is Tulga’s relationship with the tribe, which is an important consideration when we were planning this trip as we want to be as respectful as possible to the tribe for them not to feel uneasy during our stay. Our group was delighted to have raw and authentic Mongolian experience without having to sacrifice comfort – we had delicious food, great accommodation and comfortable transportation all throughout our trip – thanks to the incredible team of Nomadic Trails!
