Detailed Tours Description

 

1st day

Arrive Ulaanbaatar

On arrival in Ulaanbaatar, you will be taken to your 3-star hotel. After lunch we will visit the National History Museum where you can learn something about Mongolia's dramatic past. After this, you will have time scroll through the city streets. We will have dinner in a local restaurant.

(Hotel, B, L, D)

2nd day

Today we will drive to Terelj National Park, a beautiful area of rocks and forested hills, only a short drive out of the city. You will get your first glimpse of the traditional nomadic lifestyle of Mongolian herdsmen with their yaks, sheep and horses. After lunch in a ger camp, we will hike in the steppes in the direction of the Tuul River valley and we will also meet our horsemen. We will camp overnight on the banks of the Tuul River.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

3rd day

After breakfast, we will load our packhorses. You will be impressed at the strength of the small but sturdy Mongolian horses. We will hike into the valley along the base of the mountain ranges. As we leave civilization behind, you will hear and see ever more ground squirrels, marmots and birds. After about five-and-a-half hours of hiking, we will set up camp.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

4th day

Today as we hike along the Tuul River, you will notice how the landscape changes as we go north and hike through silent pine forests where all you will hear is the occasional animal call. Keep your ears open for the sound of woodpeckers and keep your eyes open for golden eagles, soaring far above us hunting for prey. After four hours of hiking, we will arrive at our camping spot, a green and peaceful place where the Tuul and Khongoryn rivers meet.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

5th day

Today we hike still further along the open valley along the Tuul River, surrounded on both sides by high, densely forested mountains. We will camp at the junction of two different valleys on the banks of the Tuul River.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

6th day

Today we leave the Tuul valley and enter an area of tundra, which is the habitat of the moose. You will soon become an expert at 'moose detection.' After about two hours of hiking in a typical Siberian landscape, we will climb up the mountain through deep forest where deer, wolves, moose and bears live. Keep your eyes open! At the top of the mountain, we cross the pass and descend to the breathtakingly beautiful Black Lake. We will camp on the yellow sand beach of the lake.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

7th day and 8th day

On days 7 and 8, we will stay camped by the lake and you can swim or fish in the clear water, hike in the forests or go bird and animal watching.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

9th day

Today we will visit three smaller lakes. Some of you may wish to climb the surrounding mountains to admire the stunning views. We will camp in this area.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

10th day

Today we will follow the Khongoryn River downstream for about five hours and camp near a river crossing. The high mountains and the deep valley make this a wonderful day of hiking.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

11th day

Today's hike starts in wide valleys, but after about three hours these give way to large mountain forests of birch, pine and cedar. We will climb up a steep path for about two hours until we come to a high pass close to the Altan Olgii peak. At an elevation of 2646m, Altan Olgii (meaning Golden Cradle) is one of the highest peaks in the Khentii Mountain range. On the other side of the mountain, we will camp near a stream where you can cool off after your strenuous day.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

12th day

Today we return to Terelj through the Dund Bayan valley. Our luggage, food and equipment will be loaded onto our packhorses and we will meet up again with our vehicles after about six hours of hiking. This evening we will sleep in a ger camp and you will have the chance to meet and chat with local herdsmen.

(Tented Camp, B, L, D)

13th day

The horsemen will invite you for a horse ride through Terelj National Park. We hope this will whet your appetite for the delicious traditional farewell lunch to follow! 'Horhog' is mutton and large chunks of vegetable cooked in a huge metal pot with hot stones from a flaming fire. You will be intrigued to see what is done to the rocks after the meal is served. After lunch, we leave Terelj and return to Ulaanbaatar and your hotel.

14th day

Today we visit Gandan Monastery, a large and active monastery in Ulaanbaatar, and the Bogd Khan Winter Palace, home to the last religious king of Mongolia. After this, you will have time for souvenir shopping before our farewell dinner at a local restaurant.

15th day
