Mongolia’s Gobi Desert has been named as one of the world’s top six environmental destinations for 2008 and beyond by the National Geographic Adventure Magazine.


“As you would expect of one of the world’s most sparsely populated countries, Mongolia’s trekking is phenomenal, through vacant stretches of desert, steppe, and high mountains,” the magazine said.

National Geographic Adventure Magazine presented Mongolia with their “Best of 2008 Adventure Destination” award at a New York press event, which was hosted by the Mongolian National Tourism Organization (MNTO), a non-profit organization, and the Ministry of Roads, Transport, and Tourism.

The event highlighted Mongolia as an emerging destination for Americans seeking experiences that could be range from adventurous to luxurious.

The event also marked the opening of MNTO’s U.S. tourism office, operated in partnership with The Bradford Group, a NY-based Marketing/Advertising/PR firm. The office will serve as a hub for industry professionals.

Ambassador O.Enkhtsetseg, Mongolia’s Permanent Representative to the UN, attended the meeting.
“Americans are travel trendsetters, and the allure of Mongolia’s vast landscapes and nomadic culture offers the opportunity to explore the unexplored,” said the Ambassador.

“There aren’t many places where you can ride a horse, visit a nomadic family, then enjoy French cuisine and a massage at a brand-name hotel like Kempinski or Hilton all in the same day,” added MNTO Governing Board Member B.Indraa.

The Mongolian tourism authority expects more tourists to visit this year because the country is one of the globe’s ideal observation places to view total solar eclipse that will happen on August 1, 2008.
