Tour 1: Central Mongolia

Map with tour itinerary

This is our "short and fast" tour. While many people will think that it isn't even worth it to travel to Mongolia for just one week, it is of course still better than nothing if you don't have more time. A short tour is also optimal for combination with other destinations, such as China or Russia.

Please ask us for your preferred time period!

When your travel time is in july, then we will of course visit the Naadam festival, either in Ulaanbaatar or in Kharkhorin. The itinerary will be adapted accordingly.

Wild Horses

In the Khustain Nuruu national park, a project has been running for several years to reestablish the original wild horses (Takhi) again in Mongolia. There are several places near the river where the beautiful and normally very shy animals gather for drinking every morning and evening. This offers a great opportunity to watch them and take pictures.
