Climate And Clothing

Most parts of Mongolia are about 1000 to 3000 m above sea level and temperatures can change during the day. The climate is mainly continental. So even if you visit Mongolia in summer and it’s hot during the day, in the night it’s going to be cold or even freezing. Don’t forget warm and robust clothing and something against rain! Temperatures in summer are mostly in between 5°C and 30°C.
