Interesting facts about Mongolian Men
Mongolia is located in Central Asia. This means that, in terms of weather, it can be particularly difficult during both the summer and the winter months. Mongolian men are used to harsh conditions and can withstand extreme weather.
Winter temperatures range from -40 degrees to -20 degrees Celsius, while summer temperatures range from +10 degrees to 40 degrees Celsius.
The Mongolian people are a hardy bunch, able to survive in even the most adverse conditions. This is due in part to their diet; on average, they consume 0.5 kg of meat per day, giving them excellent muscular strength which helps them get through winter.
When traveling through rural areas of Mongolia, keep in mind that many residents will have had a drink or two (which is understandable given the lack of entertainment options and cold temperatures).
Mongolian family culture is very strong. The family is the most important unit in Mongolian society, and children are taught to respect their elders from a very young age. Mongolian men are expected to be providers and protectors of their families. Mongolian men take great pride in their families, and they will do anything to protect them.
However, this pride is often the leading issue in domestic abuse. Globally, girls have fewer educational opportunities than boys; though in Mongolia, it’s reversed. This has been called a “reverse gender gap.”
In herding cultures, boys have historically been taken out of school to assist manage the flock while usually all the girls were encouraged to continue their education. Males still trail far behind females in education today, with Mongolian women accounting for 62 percent of university, college, and institute graduates in 2015, according to the National Statistics Office.
This makes Mongolian men feel uneasy with the idea of their wives being the breadwinners. Though not all of them are like that, it can be said this is one of the reasons for divorces and breakups.
Mongolian people are very hard workers. In office, in site any place they can be the great head. Mongolian men are used to working long hours in difficult conditions. They are also very good at problem-solving and are always looking for ways to improve their work. Mongolian men are great at multitasking and can handle multiple tasks at the same time.
Mongolian men are also very good at business. They are always looking for new opportunities and are always ready to take risks. Mongolian men are very entrepreneurial and are always looking for ways to make money.
The only downside of dealing with Mongolian men in their own environment is that they are frequently late for appointments, whether they are personal or business. However, an interesting thing to note is that this problem doesn’t typically exist in foreign countries. Mongolian men living abroad tend to be some of the hardest working men in the profession.
Mongolian men can be the worst and best drivers you’ll ever encounter. We will get you to your destination feeling frazzled. Constantly switching lanes and cutting people off, Mongolian traffic is not for the faint of heart. And with traffic jams happening on a daily basis, you should hope your taxi driver drives like a crazy person in order to get through it all!
While Mongolian men may not be the best drivers, they are very skilled at maneuvering their vehicles in difficult conditions. They are also very good at fixing cars and can often be seen working on their own vehicles; they are some of the best mechanics. They are very good at repairing cars and other machinery. So, on a Mongolian dirt road, they are the number one person to bring along.
The average Mongolian man ranks 26th shortest in the world, coming in at 168 cm tall and 67.7 kg according to a 2006 study conducted by the World Health Organization with Mongolian researchers.

Things to keep in mind when talking to Mongolian Men
Forget about your stupid preconceptions and stereotypes. The top three annoying assumptions Mongolians face from foreigners are those:
- people assume we are from China, or Mongolia is part of China. Those are false, we are not Chinese, and Mongolia is its own, independent country.
- people remark, “Oh, you’re from Mongolia? Did you grow up in a yurt?” No, we have building houses roads and cars just like you.
- And my personal favorite: “Mongolians must be really good at horseback riding and archery, right?” No, not all Mongolians can ride a horse or shoot an arrow. Just like not every American is able to drive a car or shoot a gun. Be respectful
Be respectful of Mongolia and its history and traditions. Mongolians are proud of their country and its history.
We have a very distinctive lifestyle and traditions that span many aspects of life, many of which are unique to Mongolia, and cannot be found in other countries (and therefore will be strange to you in ways that Japanese or French customs won’t because you already know them from books or TV).
Don’t touch someone’s head without their consent. Mongolia has a high regard for hats, and you can’t put a hat on the floor or touch another person’s hat unless they give you permission. We believe the spirit of man resides in the hat.
If you don’t drink alcohol, simply hold the glass to your lips and pretend to take a sip when someone offers it to you. In Mongolia, there is a toxic culture around drinking where everyone is expected to consume alcohol.
While you can rail against this societal norm, it’s likely that you’ll just get an eye roll and lecture about respect in return. Therefore, it’s better to go along with the crowd and pretend to drink alcohol if you want avoid any conflict.
Similarly if you don’t want to eat sweets when you visit someone’s house, just put them in your pocket. But always grab some when a bowl is offered.
