Responsible tourism: Trans Mongolian adventure vacation
Although the Mongolian environment is vast and sparse it is also one worth protecting. Deep in mineral content, it makes for a serious target by many mining companies looking to make their mark. Our company believes in following responsible tourism values and has done so since our inception. To reduce the amount of waste created on tours, tour leaders also encourage travelers to use refillable water bottles instead of disposable plastic, cotton tote bags, reusable batteries, etc. We also include destination-specific information in our guidebooks, which are provided to each traveler including information particular to the local culture and environment and tips on how to be a responsible traveler.
Low Impact Transportation: Using public transport is the most sustainable way to go – after walking and cycling of course! On this trip you’ll be taking the train across Siberia and Mongolia, traveling as locals do, with low impact in emissions and high impact in culture!
You’re not going to find a better way to experience culture than by riding the Trans-Mongolian Railway. This is your chance to interact with the locals, share stories, play charades while trying to communicate, take photos and make new friends. Learn about the local way of life from your local homestay in the Siberian town of Listvyanka. You will be guaranteed to walk away from this trip forever changed!
Don’t forget about one of the highlights of this trip; the World Heritage Sites forever protected by UNESCO via your continued support. Beijing has the famous Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and Temple of Heaven. There is also the World Natural Heritage Site of Lake Baikal in Siberia, and Moscow’s Kremlin and Red Square.
