Right now, I would say it is a little better than February and January. And sometimes we even have to see more pollution in the Summer time.
Pollution may cause cancer so people in Mongolia please wear masks. I heard the pollution is worse when its January to February.

I live here and air pollution is one of the biggest problem here and traffic. Of course countryside areas are not like this at all but capital city Ulaanbaatar has total of almost 2 million people ( our country's population is 3 million) and very crowded because Ulaanbaatar is very small compared to other areas in Mongolia, plus almost all of the people( of course adults) here drives a car to their work or wherever it is, literally only students, and elders ride a public transportation bus. Especially in winter air pollution is toooo high, its just like breathing smoke

Ulaanbaatar was recently named in a WHO report as the second-most polluted city on earth, and a peer-reviewed study by an expert epidemiologist estimated that 1 in 10 deaths in UB is due to air pollution. I lived here for a year and a half and the pollution is truly appalling. The traffic is also abysmal and it is the coldest capital city on earth, with an average annual temperature just under freezing.
