Mongolia is known as the “Land of the Eternal Blue Sky”. Mongolia enjoys more than 250 days of sunshine a year, which has earned it the nickname “Land of the Eternal Blue Sky” or “Country of Blue Sky”.

Mongolians refer to their own country as “Blue Mongolia”. Blue sky doesn’t always equate to warmth, though; Mongolia’s climate is extreme, and though most of the country is hot in summer, temperatures can plummet to -30 degrees Celsius in winter. Indeed, the capital, Ulaanbaatar, is the world’s chilliest capital city, with an average temperature of -1.3 degrees.
