Zip Facts about Mongolia:

  • Mongolia, as the least densely populated country in the world, ranks second behind Kazakhstan, as the world’s largest landlocked country. Like New Zealand, there are more sheep than people in Mongolia
  • Mongolia is the home of the world’s oldest national park, Bogd Khan National Park, built in 1778
  • If a person from Mongolia accidentally bumps into someone or steps on their foot, they will automatically reach out their hand to shake or as a symbol of apology
  • Mongolians whisper a prayer instead of making a wish on a shooting star, for the person who may be dying
  • Do not whistle indoors in Mongolia, you would be calling evil spirits into the dwelling
