Best Time to Go
The best time to visit Mongolia is from May to September, when the temperature is comfortable. However, winter clothing also should be prepared because of the strong wind and the difference in temperature between day and night. It is necessary to bring clothes like coats, wind coat, cotton and down jacket.

In spring, it sometimes has snows and sandstorms and the weather changes quickly. In summer, it is the best time to pay a visit here. In autumn, the weather may not change so quickly but it turns to be cold. Winter is not a good time for best Mongolia tours as it always has blizzards.
  Mongolia owns an international airport named "Chinggis Khaan International Airport", as well as railways and highways. It's possible to arrive at Chinggis Khaan International Airport from Beijing, Moscow and Berlin. There are lots of means of transportation for travelling within the country, such as hiking, cycling, horse-riding and buses.
  For people who plan Mongolia travel packages, it's necessary to prepare enough mineral water because the water on grassland has a high salt and alkali content which is not easy to be adapted.

The public security is not very good. Pay attention to your property when traveling and it's not suitable to go out at night or go to some places that are far away from the crowded. 
 
History
This country used to be ruled by several nomadic peoples in history, such as Xiongnu, Xianbei, Rouran, Turkic and Khitan. Chinggis Khan founded the Mongolian Empire in 1206, which used to be the largest country all over the world. Then his grandson, Kublai Khan, founded the Yuan Empire in 1271. In 1944, the regime was divided into three parts, respectively parts of the Former Soviet Union and China, and an independent regime. In 1921, the part of Former Soviet Union and the independent regime founded the country.
 
Geography
Most parts of the country are covered with grassy steppe, and the arable land is limited. The highest point is the Khuiten Peak, 4,653 meters (15,266 ft) high. With mountains to the north and the west and the Gobi Desert to the south, almost all nationals are nomadic and semi-nomadic. Lake Hovsgul is the most famous river in the country.

Dear kj, you will need to apply for the Mongolia visa on your own at the local embassy. We will be pleased to offer you an invitation letter to assist you to get the visa. The application process usually takes 7-14 working days and the period of validity is 6 months.

hi,
There is no direct flight from Ulaanbaatar to Inner Mongolia. You need to connect flight via Beijing. Actually the scenery in Mongolia and Inner Mongolia is very similar. No need to visit both of them. You could chose one of them.
