Tsaatan Reindeer Trek
on horse a day
Magical moments await at the homeland of the Tsaatan!
This once in a lifetime ride will take you across 3000 meter high mountains, along the shores of the famed lake Khovsgul and up to meet the Tsataan Peoples – the last surviving truly nomadic Reindeer tribe on the planet. We will be spending a full day relaxing with the Tsataan People and getting a chance to see their life up close and personal. The difficult terrain means a slower pace and lots of time to enjoy the amazing vistas offered in this remote, forested part of Mongolia. Our circular route will have us heading our in a South Easterly direction and returning along beautiful ridge lines and wide open vistas to our starting point.
