Tour 10: Family Holidays in a Nomadic Camp

Map with tour itinerary

This offer is not one of the usual tours. In fact, it's not a "tour" at all, but a stationary holiday location in the camp of a family of nomads. This is perfect for families with children, because it won't tire them with eating endless stretches of road. To make communication with the nomads easier, a multilingual contact person will always be around. Food is also available, but you can of course also cook yourself, if you so desire. Your stationary yurt will serve as a basis for excursions to various interesting places nearby. On other days, you can watch how the nomads work with their animals, or even help a bit here and there.

Please ask us for your preferred time period!

2. Day

Welcome to Mongolia!

We don't waste any time, but drive directly from the airport to the countryside. In the hills of Khustain-Nuruu there's a chance to unwind in pristine nature. A project has been running for several years here 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.

Sand Dunes in the Green

On the back to Ulaanbaatar, we stop at the sand dunes of Mongol Els. Those are a small "mountain range" made out of sand, which is surrounded by green landscape and looks like it doesn't really belong there.
