Sustainability

For a Vibrant Mongolia

As a female-owned company with woman-run offices in both the U.S. and Mongolia, Blue Silk Travel harnesses the power of tourism and cross-cultural exchange for Mongolia's sustainable development.

We create immersive travel experiences on a foundation of respect for the natural world, traditional culture and sustainable livelihoods.

Cultural Engagement

From sponsoring the Naadam Festival and the Altai Kazakh Eagle Festival to collaborating with the trailblazing eagle huntress Aisholpan and her family, to working with traditional archers, musicians and dancers, our deep engagement with Mongolian culture provides our travelers with unique, culturally immersive experiences.

Environmental Responsibility

Choose a leader in protecting Mongolia's wild spaces. Ride in comfortable SUVs, which are easier on Mongolia's fragile landscape than large tour buses. Join us in reducing the use of single-use plastic water bottles. And, sleep well in the country's most comfortable ger camps, chosen in consideration of their community engagement and environmental practices.

Since understanding the natural world goes hand-in-hand with protecting it, we train expert tour leaders and engage with paleontologists seeking to understand Mongolia's rich natural history.

Economic Development

Your journey to Mongolia supports the sustainable development of Mongolia. The tourism industry employs many Mongolians, both directly and indirectly, and Blue Silk Travel works primarily with Mongolian-owned accommodations hotels, ger camps, and restaurants. We especially seek out fellow women who are entrepreneurs and managers, and we are proud to feature the creations of female craftwomen and artisans.

A healthy community is a prerequisite for economic development. Our Come Together program is designed to keep you, and the communities through which you travel, safe, healthy, and thriving.
