How much time is needed for a trip to Mongolia
Given the great distances involved and time needed for a trip to Mongolia, I’d recommend spending at least a month in the country. With a month, you could fly out west to Bayan Olgii, head up to Tavan Bogd National Park and make your way back to Ulaanbaatar via Uvs, Khovsgol, Arkhangai and Kharkhorin. This would take around a month. Tack on a few more days to have a more relaxed visit to Ulaanbaatar and environs. With six full weeks you could tag on a trip to the Gobi or a visit to the eastern aimags.
