What to do in Mongolia: They Drink Fermented Horse Milk

Mongolia, the birthplace of the great Genghis Khan! This country has an ancient history of warriors and nomads, preserving to this day a rich culture and an incredibly diverse landscape. Have you ever imagined riding a horse through the endless steppes that were home to some of the most feared warrior tribes in history?

We begin our tour in vibrant Ulan Bator, the capital and cultural center of Mongolia. Visit the imposing Gandan Monastery, a true oasis of peace. Next, explore Gorkhi-Terelj National Park, famous for its rock formations and the opportunity to experience nomadic life in a ger, the traditional Mongolian tent. We can't forget Khustain Nuruu, the park where Przewalski's wild horses live. Another must-see place is the Gobi Desert, the fifth largest desert in the world, where we will experience an incredible desert adventure. And finally, visit Karakorum, the ancient capital of the Mongol Empire. The local currency is Tögrög and the language is Mongolian. Good news for us Brazilians, as we do not need a visa for stays of up to 90 days!

Mongolia is a parliamentary democracy and has experienced rapid economic development in recent years, driven mainly by the mining and agricultural sectors. However, despite its growth, it still faces significant challenges such as poverty and economic disparities.


Traveling through Mongolia is a very affordable experience compared to other destinations. Accommodation in a traditional ger, for example, is an economical and culturally enriching option.

Now, about our curiosity in the title: is it true that Mongolians drink fermented horse milk? Yes it is true! "Airag" is a traditional drink made from fermented mare's milk, considered the national drink of Mongolia. It may seem strange to us, but it is an essential part of Mongolian culture!
