For travelers to Mongolia the preparation is the key. We provide detailed packing list and advice for the preparation of the tour to Mongolia. Mongolia is a country of extremes and weather is unpredictable and what you take will depend on where and when you intend to travel, and in which way you travel- on an organized tour, on a wilderness expedition or on a business. Checklists are provided below for seasonal and special activity-tours. 



Clothing is important for Mongolian trips. Days are warm and knights are bit chilly, even if you travel in summer in the Gobi. So you will always need layers and warm clothes.

T-shirts(long and short sleeved), cotton polo-neck, cotton slacks, shorts, fleece or cashmere jumper, small thin scarves, lightweight jacket, cotton and light woolen socks, outdoor waterproof boots(tested and tried), lightweight shoes or sandals, sun hat, large cotton scarf(acts as towel, neck guard, sleeping guard), long johns, thin underwear and wet-weather gear and waterproof suit(trousers and jacket).


For winter (additional summer list above)

Wear layers of clothing; wool, cotton under fleeces, thermal underwear, cotton or cashmere pullovers, polar jacket and furs. Selection of cotton or woolen socks, leather boots (worn in and comfortable), gaiters if skiing, cashmere under gloves, woolen hat with ear flaps, wind proof gear.

You can buy the finest cashmere products in Mongolia at the reasonable prices.
