Nowadays there are certainly no hordes and the invaders are more likely to slip over the border by train than on horseback. Those that do though discover a country of startling beauty with a culture not much changed since the time of the Great Khan himself.
Most visitors to Mongolia travel into the country on the Trans Mongolian railway. Connecting with the famous Trans Siberian just south of Lake Baikal the train rolls across the Mongolian Steppe into Ulaanbataar. It’s usually possible to hop off for a few days to explore the capital and travel out into the countryside to enjoy a night in a yurt and meet the local people before travelling out across the Gobi Desert into China. This is a great introduction to the country for those looking for a taste of Mongolian life and you can choose a number of different styles from the bare bones guiding of the Vodkatrain to the opulent luxury of the Golden Eagle.
If you're flexible on when you can travel, be sure to try and catch the Naadam festival, three days of parades, marches and intense competition where the local champions compete for mastery in horse racing, wrestling and archery in front of packed stadiums. With food, music and crafts to enjoy away from the competition it’s a wonderful time to visit the country
