Weather conditions in Mongolia are often unpredictable. Flexibility and endurance are thus essential for a horseback riding.
This astonishing once in a lifetime experience will include flights to and from far western Mongolia along with car transportation from the airport to the beginning of the trek. Travel is expected to take 2 days each way and riders will have to arrive approx. 2 days early in Ulaanbaatar as flight schedules are often subject to change.
Upon arrival at our base, we will have 5 or 6 days of riding through some of the most stunning and pristine wilderness and along glittering, crystal clear lakes. Along the way, we will be visiting with the original Eagle Hunters families where we will have an Eagle Flying demonstration. Please note that this is subject to change based on the health and strength of the Eagles.
As part of this epic adventure, in addition to one of the most stunning rides on the planet, we will have 1 day of hiking to the very top of “The Heart of Mongolia”, the tallest peak in Mongolia, Altai Tavan Bogd where the borders of Russia, China, and Mongolia meet. This is a challenging hike and those wishing not to take part are welcome to remain at the base camp for a rest day.
Please note that we can recommend accommodation in Ulaanbaatar prior to the trek but as there is a wide variety of accommodation levels and standards, the tariff for the Western Mongolia Adventure does not include food or accommodation in Ulaanbaatar prior to the trek.
