Khan Khentii Mongolia
A close encounter with the Mongolian horsemen and their exquisite horse culture...

The nomads of Mongolia, who to date have survived the global spread of modern lifestyles and therefore the pressures that come with, welcome you to explore their culture and their landscapes. There is no other nation in the world that depends so readily on the horse. Mongol horsemanship is famous  and strikingly different to anything else.

This horse trek is without vehicle support out in remote, rugged and wild terrain - our luggage will be loaded on to yak- and horse-carts as the nomads traditionally would. Mongolian families frequently move from place to place using these wooden carts which are hitched to the animals available in the region like yaks, or rather yak-cow crossbreeds called hainag. The 'Ger's  will be carried to house our mobile restaurant unit and for our days and nights camping along the rivers.

The ride starts over the treeless steppes and across rather hilly terrain with occasional patches of lonely birch forest. We will encounter nomadic families where some of the most famous horse trainers of Mongolia live. The herders out here keep their horses in semi-wild conditions, allowing them to live freely in harem groups. There are no fences or any stables - anywhere.
Eventually the forests will appear and we will ride towards the Hentii wilderness area consisting of Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area which is within the interior parts of Gorkhi Terelj National Park. We ride through larch forests, up  the soft slopes of the mountains following ridges with the most superb Mongolian scenery whilst our yak carts follow the broad river valleys. Two nights in the Sharbulag Valley, then we cross a pass and ride into the upper parts of the Tuul River Valley, near the main ridge of the Hentii Mountains before we reach Jalman Meadows, famous for its wildflowers and ger camp, where we spend two more nights before returning to UlaanBator. Riding in Mongolia is an extraordinary experience you don't want to miss.

In early July this trip can be combined with the world famous Naadaam in Ulaanbataar!  Reserve early! A once in a lifetime experience for those who wish to immerse themselves in the horse culture of Mongolia!
