Info

High season in Mongolia runs from June to August. June and July experience mainly dry weather with some thunderstorms, with late August seeing cooler temperatures and more rain, it is best to pre-book flights and accommodation around this time. October to April is low season with most ger camps and some guesthouses closing, the weather is particularly cold in December/January and there will be lot of air pollution in Ulaanbaatar. Wind & dust storms are common in March/April and activities such as dog sledding, ice skating and skiing are popular. May & September can be a good time to go if you are on a budget as accommodation and plane tickets can be cheaper but be prepared for changeable weather.
