The 'Land of Blue Sky' is one of the few places on earth where travellers can tread on undiscovered ground and explore with a true sense of adventure. Homeland of Genghis Khan, vast tracts can be discovered on horse or camel, or in the comfort of a four-wheel drive. This updated guide highlights Mongolia’s culture and customs including the deel, the colourful national dress, herding rules and customs, Mongolian throat singing and Naadam, the annual celebration of wrestling, archery and horse-riding. The guide offers tips on riding and biking tours, winter dog sledding and summer yoga camps and provides in-depth information on national parks and conservation as well as reviewing the many new hotels and restaurants.

A wonderful book. I am also finding "Mongolia: Discover the Real Mongolia," a travel guide written by former Peace Corps Volunteers Nathan Chamberlain, Leslie Chamberlain, Ashlee Christian, and Andrew Cullen (Other Places Publishing, 2012), to be very helpful, as it presents a less establishment view of practicalities than does Blunden's book. By contrast, Blunden includes more history and context.
Excellent practical guide. I haven't been there yet, but this book seems to have everything covered.
Good and informative book
