This period witnesses the highest temperature, hovering around 20°C, and is ideal for visiting the Gobi desert, trekking in national parks or attending the celebrated Naadam Festival.

For those preferring serenity and pocket-friendly packages, visiting during the shoulder seasons, either April to June or September to November can prove rewarding. The weather during these periods is relatively mild, and though some areas may be inaccessible due to rains, you'll find popular tourist spots less crowded.
