Gobi Gua Undur was created between the partnership of me (Jess) of Eternal Landscapes Mongolia and Turuu – my Mongolian business partner.
Gobi Gua Undur is our 100% Mongolian company – physically and culturally- with the emphasis on promoting a greater travel approach to benefit everyone involved, leading to a more positive and personal style of experience for all concerned. As a business working in tourism we have a responsibility to help combat problems including those created by tourism itself.
We never wanted to compete directly with our competitors who try and capture a bigger market. We are comfortable with not trying to be all things to all people. To say this is us. This is what we stand for. This is what we believe in. We believe that our philosophy helps create positive social change in Mongolia.
We employ only female Mongolian trip assistants
We don’t employ the best
We provide opportunities for traditional Mongolian males
We create long-term local community parnerships
We break down stereotypes and clichés
