Travel Vaccinations for Mongolia

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Mongolia

Mongolia is one of the very few countries in the world where nomadic traditions are still very much alive. It is also one of the most sparsely populated countries on the planet for its size – so great if you want to experience some truly tribal life in relative peace and quiet. A famous name in Mongolian history is of course Genghis Khan who united the tribes and vastly extended the empire. If you’re looking for something to do here, try canoeing, visiting reindeer herders or attending a nomadic festival.

Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again.

Further Travel Health Advice for Mongolia

Some parts of Mongolia are situated higher than 2500m, so altitude sickness could be a problem. You can obtain altitude sickness medication and practice appropriate acclimatisation and gradual ascents to counter altitude sickness. Don’t forget, its not just your climbing altitude but your sleeping altitude as well that must be considered. Our travel nurse will be able to discuss these with you and offer you the relevant advice.

The weather in Mongolia is varied depending on where you travel and time of year of your trip. Generally though it is warm so take adequate sun protection. Try to go in Mongolia’s autumn when the crowds are few and the days are still warm. Please make sure to check the weather for the period you are travelling, as you will need to pack adequately and take reasonable precautions for the climate here.

Tap water in Mongolia is not considered safe to drink. Stick to bottled water and always check the water that food has been washed in. As an extra precaution, take some water purifying tablets with you or some kind of water purification system.

Mutton, lamb and goat are favoured here as well as milky tea. In fact, milk, milk and more milk is the order of the day here so come prepared. Even the national alcoholic beverage is made of fermented milk.

Lots of different infections can be spread through insect bites and animal bites,. Please take reasonable precautions when travelling, especially around dogs in Mongolia

Make sure you have health insurance in place that will cover the full range of activities you plan to undertake while in Mongolia.

Mongolia is relatively safe but crime does happen here so practice sensible travelling precautions like not walking alone through deserted streets and alleys at night and by keeping your valuables out of sight. Please read up on respectful practices in Mongolia before you travel so as not to offend the locals or get into unnecessary trouble. Women travelling alone should be extra careful.
