MONGOLIAN   ALTAI   HORSE   TREKKING

MONGOLIAN ALTAI HORSE TREKKING

This fantastic horse trekking adventure takes place in very remote areas of Western Mongolia, in Altai Tavan Bogd National Park among the snow-capped peaks of the High Altai Moun­tains, one of the longest mountain chains in Central Asia. In this remote corner where Mongolia, China, and Russia meet, we dis­cover a beautiful swath of untouched wilderness, topped by the 14,000-foot peaks of Tayan Bogd National Park.

With Bactrian camels and horses to carry our gear, we camp at alpine lakes, hike to a glacier-, explore ancient burial mounds and petroglyphs that are haunting testaments to Mon­golia's shornanic traditions, and experience a pristine mountain world where Mongolian Kazakh nomads still hunt with golden eagles.

We experience the nomad culture, participate their nomad games as well visit their gers!

Join us for a true expedition across trackless terrain - a singular experience for adventurous trekkers.
