It has 12 provinces and all the 12 provinces are divided into 6 touristic destinations. It has its own delicacy, history, special characters and landscapes. It is a very unique and different destination. It is one of the rarely explored tourist destinations around the world. It offers a mixture of spectacular natural features. The ministry of culture sport and tourism in January 2013 passed an official slogan for Mongolia’s tourism “Go nomadic, Experience Mongolia”.
The six tourism destinations of Mongolia are: northern Mongolia, southern Mongolia, western Mongolia, eastern Mongolia, central Mongolia and surrounding Ulaanbaatar.
Northern Mongolia is the main travel destination. There are several beautiful places out there to travel. It is a very peaceful place to visit. There is a pristine lake Hovsgol, known as Mongolia’s “dark blue pearl”. This lake is believed to be several million years old.
