Transport in Mongolia
Travel to Mongolia
Mongolia is a huge country and public transport, even in and around Ulaanbaatar, is very limited. There are regular bus services from Ulaanbaatar to the aimag (province) centres and back, but no public transport will bring you any further into the countryside or to worth seeing spots. Often organised transport is the only way to get where you want.
We offer following transport facilities:
You don't want to book a tour through a travel company, you want to enjoy the freedom to go wherever you want and to see what you want. Rent a vehicle and discover the natural and cultural wonders of Mongolia. For more details on how to travel at less costs, see or chapter ?Budget Travel?.
We offer following jeep and minivan rental prices:
Pleae send us a mail to get the updated prices.
* The driver will eat with you. If you stay in a ger camp, you will need to pay his accommodation in the staff's dormitory. If you overnight in tents, he will sleep in his jeep.
You want to explore Mongolia, but you want to drive your vehicle yourslef. No need for a driver. This is possible with us. We have several Land cruisers for self driving. Please not that self driving costs more than renting a Land Cruiser with driver.
You want to explore Ulaanbaatar and its surroundings. The best way is to rent a car with driver for the day.
After a long journey, you arrive tired at Ulaanbaatar's airport or railways station. You don't know the town and you want to be sure to get quickly and safely at your hotel or guest house.
The staff of 'Happy Camel' will be glad to come and pick you up at your arrival.
