30 – 40 km riding per day, 5 – 7 hours in the saddle per day.
For beginners and good riders, with accompanying car.
1st Day: Transfer from Ulaanbaatar to the Camp and begin of the Horse trek.
You will start off with a 2 hour car drive from Ulaanbaatar to the Camp in the morning. Once in the camp, you will get to know the Crew and the horses. With almost 200 horses and cows you will start the trek to the Winter Camp in the Khentii. From now on, overnight stays mostly in tents.
2nd to 6th Day: riding with the herd
You will ride through the impressive Mongolian Stepp, crossing several large rivers. After around 200km in the saddle, we will reach the winter camp in the Khentii where you will stay in Gers.
7th Day : Herder Ger Camp
A whole day to relax or, for anyone who wants to, a 2 to 3 hour ride in the gorgeous valleys of the Khentii, or climbing one of the surrounding hills by foot.
8th to 12th Day : Riding
Recovered, you will be back in the Saddle and ride the 200km back to the Camp, this time you will be riding faster as we do not have the herd to ride with. By now, you are familiar with your horses and can enjoy the surrounding nature even more.
When arriving in the camp, you will give back your horses. After a last meal and goodbyes to the Crew, you will drive back to Ulaanbaatar (around 2 hours) and stay in the Hotel of your choice.
13th Day: Return trip to your country or individual program.
