Food & Dining
We always travel with produce & ingredients that we buy during our stops in the countryside villages. That’s why for lunch and/or for dinner, depending on your accommodation, a fresh, tasty little meal is prepared for you in the great outdoors by your guide or your cook (optional in groups of more than 6 people). If you plan to stay overnight in yurt camps or host families, you can also dine and have breakfast there.
For those who want to home-stay with the nomads, the Mongolian diet is mainly based on sheep meat, dairy products and flour. This is traditionally related to fighting the cold climate in the winters by helping locals gain a high caloric intake to keep warm and healthy.
If you or your fellow travelers are vegan, vegetarian or allergic to any food, especially dairy, please let us know in advance!
In the capital Ulaanbaatar, it is possible to find many different types of food and restaurants for your taste, but in the countryside, the commodities are less diverse and fresh products (fruits and vegetables) are rarer – apart from local dairy products.
Well then, bon appétit!
