Tour 8: Trekking

Map with tour itinerary

This offer is not one of the usual "tours", but a series of trecks. The participants should therefore bring a certain minimal fitness. In between, we'll change location by off-road vehicle, in order to visit several different types of scenery.

Please ask us for your preferred time period!

It is the center of a protected area, which is home to ibex, wolves, and various predator birds, among others. There is a small monastery at the foot of the mountain.

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.
