Weather in Mongolia
Mongolia is famous with its four season weather conditions. Mongolia is located in central Asia and it borders with China from its south and with Russian Siberia from its north. I hope you know about brutal cold in Siberia so Mongolia is extremely cold in winter and hot and dry in summer.
Winter in Mongolia: Winter months in Mongolia December, January, February. These three months are the coldest in Mongolia. Normally in the cities are -20 -25. It is very rare that it gets -35 or -40. But -20 or-25 are enough to make you feel freezing cold.
If you travel to Mongolia in winter you must have the warmest clothing ever. Always wear warm hat and few layers of socks in your winter boots or sues. Not only socks also I would very recommend you to wear few layers of other clothing such as trousers, jackets and warm sweaters. Maybe I can skip some information here so before you travel to Mongolia you will need to discuss this with your tour agency in Mongolia.
Summer months are June, July and August. Summer months are normally hot and dry in every parts of Mongolia. Normally it is +20 to +30 during the day time when it is sunshine. Summer is the best time all the people in Mongolia. When it is summer all the people in Mongolia start working hard specially people who work in construction. People who live in small houses in small town take their holiday from they work when it is summer to repair they houses by themselves. As from the first month of Autumn it starts getting cold and cold day after day. The end of July and August are most rainy seasons of Mongolia.
If you travel to Mongolia in summer doesn’t matter if it the end or beginning of the summer you must have good raining gears such as trousers, jackets, good boots etc. As most of Mongolian travel destinations are outside of the cities so you will need to go to national parks and will do camping, trekking or horse riding.
Summer in Mongolia hot and dry but in the national parks weather changes very quickly as it can stay sunny and afternoon it can start rain and wind even snow. In the Altai tavan bogd national park you have high possibility to see 4 seasons in one day.
