Western Mongolia

Kazak nomads first started to come to what is now Bayan Olgi in the 1840s. The nomads came to graze their sheep on the high mountain pastures during summer, and spent the winter in Kazakhstan or Xinjiang  province in China. After the Mongolian revolution in 1921, a permanent border was drawn by agreement between China, Russia and Mongolia, but the Kazaks remained nomadic until the 1930’s, crossing the border at will.

The Happy Bayar Tours - Policy of Sustainable Tourism-"Take Nothing but Pictures, Leave Nothing but Footprints and Waste Nothing but Time- The Blue Sky Country of Mongolia 2014!"

  • PROTECTING the environment - its flora, fauna and landscapes

In Mongolia the most precious commodity is forest and fresh water and it is at risk same as globally.  Since 2010, Happy- Bayar-Tours has planted more than 100 sea buckthorn trees over the Belkh area northeast of Ulaanbaatar city. Most of them are growing and our staff is actively participating tree plantation work every year. We do not hunt animals, only protects them!

  • RESPECTING local cultures - traditions, religions and built heritage

Our staff respects Mongolian Custom and Culture, we annually participated Naadam Festival the “Deeltei Mongol Naadam-Mongolia in Deel” event celebration of national culture, arts and traditional customs to show Mongolian ethnic groups clothing different types of Deel, is usually organized at the Central Square of Ulaanbaatar on 13th July since 2006.

  • BENEFITTING local communities - both economically and socially

Our activities in this field include improving local community and service; give them more chance to earn more profit for their families, sharing emerging best practices to them, developing and promoting materials to build the capacities of managers and employees, inspiring partnership innovation and improving understanding of key corporate responsibility issues both side on the global sustainable tourism agenda.

  • CONSERVING natural resources - from office to all destinations

Ecotourism is currently the fastest growing sector of the world's largest service industry, tourism. While environmentalists are weighting the pros and cons of ecotourism, Happy- Bayar-Tours are looking to cash in on the growing demand for this new trend in travel. We supported home stays at local nomadic families also in UB city, take the service from them, ride the herder’s horses and camels, use on the nomads yak carts and are guided by local nomads in tourist sightseeing areas. Our all local Mongols are more benefited by getting involved in tourist season activities year by year.

  • MINIMISING pollution - through noise, waste disposal and congestion

Happy-Bayar-Tours are supports rediscovering the benefits of buying local food. It is good for local economy because buying directly from family farmers, sellers and herders in tourist area helps them stay in business. And by buying local, it means that your most fresh food isn’t traveling long distances by planes, trains, and trucks, which all consume energy and spew pollution that contributes to global warming and unhealthy air quality. Plus you get the added benefit of what Happy-Bayar-Tours chef and senior cooks are saying is fresher, better tasting food on your table! Other minimising pollution policies you will see when you travel with us!
