Photography in Mongolia

Nothing equals the epic landscape of Mongolia.
Nothing equals the warmth of the people.
Free yourself creatively on the Steppe and find that you can't get images like this from anywhere else!

Introduction

'Rugged', 'sublime', 'epic'. These words don't even come close to describing the magnificence of Mongolia, a destination where you'll feel as free as the nomads who famously roam the vast mountains, deserts and valleys.

During this 12-night explorer photography holiday we will first experience the bustling capital, Ulaanbaatar, before travelling deep into the wild heart of Mongolia. You'll experience first hand the timeless traditions of an extraordinary country which was once regarded as an inaccessible wilderness. 

What makes this trip special?

We see so many amazing different landscapes on this trip, from the hot sand dunes of the Gobi to the red flaming cliffs to the rolling green hills of the highlands. There's a real feeling of adventure as we cross the vast country in our special 4x4 vehicles, sometimes not seeing a paved road for days.

For two nights we will also be staying at a traditional Mongolian homestay with a local family. This offers us a unique insight into Mongolian life as well as presenting some intimate photography opportunities.

Why Photograph Here?

Ideal for anyone who is reasonably confident with their camera, this holiday is popular with beginner, intermediate and more advanced snappers alike. With an emphasis on capturing the amazingly varied subject matter your tutor will be with you at all times, offering you advice and creative inspiration while on location so you never miss a shot.

Where you'll stay

For the first and last night we will be in Mongolia’s capital, Ulaanbaatar. These are the only nights when we will be staying in a hotel. We have chosen Hotel Ulaanbaatar which is very clean, comfortable and well located.

Most other nights when we are in the wilderness we will be staying in permanently located ‘ger camps’. A ger camp typically comprises 20-30 gers, each with actual beds and a traditional wood-burning stove - like glamping, but slightly more ‘authentic’! Separate male & female bathroom blocks with western-style facilities are located in the camp, as well as a communal dining ger where meals are served. All guests will enjoy the privacy and comfort of their own ger tent.

Please be aware that some may consider this ‘roughing it’ as you will be sharing your ger with another member of the group (same sex, of course). There are no showers here and toilets are somewhat basic, but staying with this family is sure to be one of the highlights experiences of the trip.
