Travel to Mongolia
« on: May 16, 2018, 11:49:23 AM »
My husband and I are honeymooning in Mongolia in July. (We were looking for off-the-beaten-path...)
We are traveling in 3 other countries before Mongolia, and all of the other destinations have access to Kosher food. 
Has anyone ordered kosher food online to be delivered to another country?
I found a website that is willing to do this, and shipping is only $65... but any firsthand experience or suggestions are welcome. (Someone suggested bringing powdered yogurt.... we are open to any/all tips! But we don't want to bring much with us since we are trying to travel very light.)
Thank you  :)

I think your safest bet is to bring some food with you and find local sources for - fish, fruits, veggies
the local milk/yogurt/kumis will be horse milk :)

https://homekosher.shop/ looks interesting. Thanks for the suggestion  :)

When I was poking around online, I also found https://kosher-box.com/ and they say they can deliver to Mongolia.
Anyone have any experience with them?

I would not rely on international shipping for food, as there's no saying what will happen at customs.

Up to 20kg usually nothing happens and local authorities dont even look at it.I have many friends that asked me to send them food to India(very bad custom prople)),China and Russia.
