To Help You Come Prepared...
Below is our general packing list of suggested items for all programs in Mongolia. Keep in mind that if you are participating in more than one program, there will be some overlap and it is not necessary to double pack. If Mongolia is your first program, you will have an opportunity to do laundry before you leave the country for your connection.
It's been said that Mongolia can experience all four seasons in a single day. Temperatures in the summer can climb up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit and drop into the 40s (sometimes even the 30s!) at nighttime. In elevated areas, it can get a bit colder.
Bring with you any medications that you will need while you are away. You will need to tell staff what medications you have brought during your orientation period. This is done privately, but it is essential that you disclose to your staff all medications you are carrying.
Pack only what you need for your journey! Airlines have strict weight restrictions, and overages are costly and time-consuming. You must also be able to carry and load your own luggage, and space in the vehicles is limited.
If you have any questions about the Mongolia packing list please feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com.
A small backpack is the best carry-on bag and will be useful on day trips.
Make sure everything you pack in your carry-on complies with the new carry-on regulations of the TSA.
Finally, try to pack one change of clothes in carry-on, if you can fit it. That can help you get by in the event of lost/delayed luggage, and can also serve as your “clean clothes kit” for when you return from the countryside.
A medium sized duffel bag or large backpack work best. Wheeled bags are OK as long as they are medium sized and can easily be carried like a duffle over rough terrain.
Sleeping Bag – nights can get chilly, so a minimum 20° F (-6° C) is recommend; synthetic is preferable to down filling because down does not insulate when wet
*Note on footwear: Deep-tread footwear is not advisable for horseback riding. Many students and staff like deep-tread hiking boots/shoes for outdoor activities – that’s good, but be sure to bring a pair of athletic sneakers with a shallower tread! This makes it easier to insert and remove your feet from the stirrups.
Please pack all items that could leak in a PLASTIC or ZIPLOCK bag
PLEASE NOTE - Rustic Pathways will not be responsible for ANY lost or stolen items. During travel it is common for items to be lost or stolen so please bring only items you are prepared to part with.
