Tourism Rate: 

Travel to Mongolia in January is absolutely not a wise choice. There is no grass on the ground, the scenic spots and resorts are all closed, and many yurts are closed to the public, too. Even if there are yurts open to the public, it is too cold to stay in it. In January, you can see beautiful snow scenery in Mongolia, but you must wear more clothes to keep warm. Playing snowball with friends and skiing in the snow and skating on the ice also are also very interesting.
