The nomadic experience

Mongolia has proven itself to be one of the most challenging countries to travel in – the long hours of driving on bumpy tracks are a sure test for your backbone. Most of all, it is about mental endurance: three days without showering, endless rides that seem to lead nowhere, sudden cravings for Coca Cola when it gets really hot in the middle of the desert and the unending meals of mutton. That being said, there can be no other experience like the Mongolian experience.
