20 – 25 km horseback riding a day, suitable for beginners and advanced riders. A maximum of 4 hours on horse a day.
Suitable for beginners, accompanying vehicle present, overnight accommodation in a yurt (cold weather) or in tents.
Day 1: Mounted on horse
After breakfast, we leave Ulaanbaatar and drive east for about 2 hours until we reach the horses at camp. We have time for a short introduction of home camp from rangers and a getting to know of the horses. We enjoy a cup of Mongolian milk-tea, coffee or tea before we head off on our adventure. Overnight stay in a tent.
Day 2 – 3: En route to “thematic yurt camp 13. Century”
We continue riding in direction of “13. Century thematic yurt camp” for 2 days, passing through forests, crossing rivers and travelling endless steppe landscapes. For most of the time, our horses walk unhurried. The accompanying vehicle is always close by, always leaving the option to take a lift for parts of the distance. Once “13. Century yurt camp” is reached, we visit the first themed yurts. Overnight stay in a tent or yurt.
Day 4: Visiting the “13. Century”
On horse or by car we visit more themed yurts close by and stay at this camp for another night.
Day 5: Riding towards Turkish monument and Tuul river
On day 5, a wonderful stretch through mountains, passing nomadic yurts awaits. We will visit the Turkish monument and set up camp close to the Tuul river.
Day 6: Arrival at home camp and return to Ulaanbaatar
Even the last day presents us with unforgettable impressions. One more time, we absorb the unique landscape of our loyal and reliable horse’s backs. We make our way to the well-known Turtle Rock, located in Terelj National Park. As their last favour, our horses will carry us back to camp across a mountain pass. We wish farewell to the horses and the crew before returning to Ulaanbaatar, where we check in to a hotel of choice.
