Some recommendations:

Winter in Mongolia typically spans from late November to early March. The Mongolian winters are cold and dry, with temperatures often dropping well below freezing. It’s essential to be prepared for the harsh winter conditions, including snowfall and icy winds. So be prepared for all weather conditions.

Best Trip Ever With Locals
Enjoyed the trip in Mongolia with my best brothers, Bunny and Ogi, who are the local guide and driver during 28 April and 4 May. They are very passionate, professional and helpful! All of us enjoy the trip so much with the true Mongolia experience with Nomadic families, tremendous natural views, awesome animals, delicious traditional Mongolian food in restaurant or prepared by Bunny, as well as the camel and horse riding. Never expect to have such a wonderful local experience! Strongly recommend for every tourist to join their tours.

Best Trip with Best Guide and Driver
At the Meg’s guesthouse, the room was very comfortable with breakfast served.
Bunny (Bujin) was our tour guide and Ogi was our driver. Bunny was very very very friendly and we made good friendship with her. She introduced the culture of Mongolia and brought us to local restaurants to enjoy the food there. She was a happy guide and always chat with us and make sure we were satisfied with the tour. We love her so much! Ogi was also a friendly driver that brought us from places to places. It was a perfect trip with them.

We joined the 5 days spring and winter culture tour and one day trip to the terej national park and chinggis khan statue. We visited local ger which they provided nice and warm living place. It was an unforgettable experience to watch the stars and galaxy above the sky and ride horse and camels.
We strongly recommend tourists to choose Meg’s.
