"Films to watch" Mongolia Favorite Tip by Willettsworld

Mongolia General: 90 reviews and 116 photos

Favorite thing: Before I set off for Mongolia, I watched a few TV programmes that centred on the way of life of the Mongolian's as well as showing the beauty of the country. It may be an idea to check them out before you set off so as to get some idea as to what to expect.

Firstly, one of the best for showing the landscapes is Long Way Round which stars film star Ewan McGregor (of the recent Star Wars trilogy fame) and Charley Boorman. Both of them are keen motorcyclists and they completed a trip around the world on two bikes from London to New York in which they passed through Mongolia.

Secondly, a TV programme called Tribe (series 1) which features Bruce Parry who spends a month living and interacting with the Darhad people of northern Mongolia. He helps them to pack up and leave their ger in the autumn plains and take a 3-day journey through the mountains to their winter camp.

And lastly, a TV programme called Ray Mear's World of Survival which features Ray Mear's studying and living with Mongolian people.
