Climate

Mongolian climate can be described as highly continental dominated climate with warm summers and long, dry and very cold winters. The country averages 257 cloudless days a year, and it is usually at the centre of a region of high atmospheric pressure. The average temp in summer is 15°C, in winter -22.3°C.


Food

Traditional Mongolian typical food is fried or cooked mutton with some garlic and onions. As well as we eat diaries and heavy meal seasonally due to our radical climate of cold long winter and hot dry summer. But in the city we eat beef, many types of vegetables, rice and flour with many ingredients. Nowadays our food culture is becoming more diverse and you can easily find international food restaurants in cities.
