Mongolia vaccinations: which ones do you need?

Are you travelling to Mongolia anytime soon? Please read our travel advice so you will know how to best prepare for your travels. It is important to know that vaccinations are recommended for Mongolia, although these are not mandatory. Which specific vaccinations you require, is dependent on the duration of your stay in this vast and stunningly beautiful country.

Mongolia is located in the eastern part of Central Asia and borders China and Russia. The country has a varied landscape, including tundra regions, mountains, steppes and deserts. The climates vary too. The very low temperatures in the sub-Arctic winter are followed by a sand storm season. As a result, the wet season – from July to October – is the best time to travel to Mongolia. A third of the population lives in the capital Ulaanbaatar. Another large group of Mongolia’s inhabitants live as nomads in yurts – traditional felt tents. Mongolia is truly a destination for adventurous travellers who prefer to travel off the beaten track. Explore the endless steppes, mountains and traditional villages on foot or travel like a true native of Mongolia: on horseback. Ulaanbaatar is a surprisingly modern city with many attractions, including historic temples and monasteries and a large black market.

Regardless of your holiday plans for Mongolia, please be aware of diseases to which you may not be resistant.
