Our high expectations are totally fulfilled. Mongolia is a great country which we enjoyed as much as the rich culture. We can not tell which place was the best since all had their own specific attractiveness. 
We would like to say a very special Thank you to our guide and driver Rolmaa and Davka ! They made our vacation really outstanding, friends and colleagues will ask for sure, because many of them have seen a lot of places in South East Asia, but none has been in Mongolia.
We will recommend Mongolia, tour operator company Ayan Travel, our guide and driver Rolmaa and Davka !
