Tour Overview

On this epic trip across Mongolia we will experience the incredible diversity of scenery in which this country abounds. From the flaming cliffs at Bayanzag and the towering sand dunes at Khongor Els we’ll make for the remote western stretches of the Gobi before heading north, crossing mountain ranges and pine and lark forests, to finally reach the grasslands and wild horses for which the country is so rightly famed.Wherever we travel we’ll be sure to encounter scattered families of Mongolians who – surprisingly perhaps for a land that gave birth to the likes of Genghis Khan – are incredibly hospitable and are usually more than happy to welcome passing travellers into their gers for a glass of airag (fermented mare’s milk).This is an adventurous 4WD trip, with much of the journey being on dirt roads but it is also highly rewarding with spectacular scenery and memorable sights throughout. Offering plenty of good walks and cultural interactions, this comprehensive tour offers a variety of experiences that is hard to beat.

Highlights

  • Explore Mongolia’s diverse landscapes, from deserts to mountains and grasslands, by 4WD

  • Stay in traditional ger camps and meet with semi-nomadic Mongolian families

  • Discover the conservation success story of the wild horses in Hustai National Park

  • Enjoy an evening of traditional Mongolian folk music and dance in Ulaanbaatar

  • Camel ride in the Khongor Els, the tallest sand dunes in Mongolia

  • Visit Erdene Zuu Monastery in Kharkhorin, the ancient capital of Genghis Khan

Key Aspects to Consider

Anyone in a reasonable state of health, with an open mind and a sense of adventure should be perfectly able to cope with this tour, as all the walks are optional.  There are some long drives to be taken but that is part of the Mongolian experience, and there will always be time for walks, photos and local encounters. Some of the areas visited are remote and see few foreign visitors so be prepared for the unexpected and be aware that changes to local conditions can dramatically affect envisaged timings and exact routings.
