Embark on an unforgettable journey in Mongolia that combines culture, wilderness, and adventure. The trip begins on the grandest note possible: attendance at the Naadam Festival in Ulaanbaatar. This is the country’s annual national celebration which dates back to the days of Ghengis Khan and includes an action-packed agenda of events, sportsmanship, and rituals.
After this high energy start, we trade the buzz of the city for the serenity of the Mongolian steppe as we spend 5 days cycling across vast plains before entering Khan Khenty, a spectacular land of wooded mountains. Here we spend 2 days trekking before capping things off with a day on horseback, traversing wooded hills, grassy river valleys and rugged mountains in true Mongol fashion.
All along the way we will sleep under the stars in tents (8 of the 11 days, in North Face V25 tents), encounter nomads tending to their flock, and relish in views of one of the world’s wildest natural frontiers.
This is classic Mongolia done right and Spice Roads has coordinated this very specialized tour for us.
