Khan Khentii Mongolia

Mongolia is a country of growing visitor interest, with its nomadic cultural heritage and vast landscape, geographically landlocked between China and Russia. The expedition begins upon the taiga terrain of Khan Khentii of Eastern Mongolia, riding out of the charming Bosog Meadows Ger Camp, 120 kilometres away from the city of Ulaanbaatar. 

The drive from the city to the camp is a 3 hour off-road adventure; little is spent on any actual tarmac road. Thereafter we continue as a truly nomadic journey, without any modern vehicle assistance in the Mongolian wilderness. Supported by a caravan of yak carts and a local nomad guide, our luggage and fully collapsible ger lodgings will be transported in authentic Mongol style! We will ride out daily on a separate route from the much slower caravan as it makes its way directly to our scenic overnight stops. We reunite with them when our exciting day of riding is over and we’re ready to enjoy a Mongolian style meal, cooked in the caravan’s “mobile restaurant” which is also packed dutifully by the yaks.

Two nights will be spent exploring each location. We will explore the mountains and meadows of the Zuunbayan and Baruunbayan valleys, looking for sightings of wildlife and camping along their rivers. We cross the grand Tuul River, home to the prehistoric and endangered sturgens who hide in its depths, reaching lengths of up to 12 feet!  Discover the vast steppe zone where the last remaining ancestor of today’s domestic horse, the Przewalski “Takhi” Horse, roamed free before its Mongolian extinction in 1961. A unique conservation project in 1992 was finally established to bring back the “Takhi” to its natural habitat. Last we spend a few nights at our Jalman Meadows Ger Camp, where you can continue to explore on horseback or you may choose to replace the riding with a float on Russian catarafts downstream or relax  in the riverside sauna!

This remarkable journey on horseback is not to be missed!  The comfort of our Ger camps are beyond any camping experience out there whilst in such primitive wilderness! You will enjoy the coziness of a real bed with full linens while each Ger is heated by a stove. Covering the southern fringes of the Khan Khentii and the scenic interior of the Gorkhi Terelj National Park with its taiga climate, you will revel in the whole nomadic experience and the beauty of Mongolia!
