Bayan-Ulgii becomes the most popular destination for tourists

Mongolia has received a total of 421,780 foreign tourists so far this year, up nearly 73 percent year-on-year. The westernmost province of Bayan-Ulgii, which borders China and Russia, is one of the main tourist destinations where people can enjoy horseback riding, trekking and camping, as well as the untouched beauty of the Altai Tavan Bogd Mountain, the country’s highest peak, and the Tsagaan gol or White River.

The Mongolian government has been taking measures to revive the pandemic-hit tourism sector. In January, 34 countries were granted visa-free entry to Mongolia for tourism purposes, which increased the number of visa-exempt countries to 61. The Asian country has also declared  2023-2025 as “Years to Visit Mongolia” to promote tourism.
