Best Time to GoThe 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.
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.
