Highlights of Mongolia tour ( 21day/20nights )

What to expect
Meet Tsaatan people /Last True Reindeer Herders/ Of course, the highlight of our trip is meeting the Tsaatan nomads and their friendly reindeer. As one of the few remaining indigenous groups of reindeer herders, the Tsaatans are a disappearing culture. Staying with them is a priceless opportunity to experience their way of life while it’s still around. Discovering wild nature all along the way Mongolia is perhaps best known for its steppes, or endless expanses of grasslands. These prairie regions are characterized by their lack of trees. Be Awed By An Ancient Monastery and See Mysterious Runes From The Bronze Age The tour will take you through some of Mongolia’s history, with visits to historic spots as the Amarbayasgalant monastery. Ride A Horse Across Epic Landscapes We’ve partnered with local herders for access to authentic local experiences, including nomadic home-stays and horse-riding through the Mongolian Steppe, which is a blaze of colour in the spring and autumn months. Ride A Camel Through Golden Gobi Enjoy a ride on the good-natured and sure footed Bactrian camels as you traverse across the amazingly beautiful Gobi Desert.

Overview

 Mongolia is one of the most interesting and unexplored places on the planet. As the world’s least densely populated country, Mongolia’s untouched landscapes and nomadic culture make it an adventure destination like no other. Located in Northern Asia with China and Russia at its borders, Mongolia has only recently moved past its status as a Soviet-influenced Communist country. Wandering through the districts, you’ll notice an interesting mix of Asian and European influences, from Soviet architecture in the capital to the Buddhist-influenced traditions widely practised. Away from the capital, you’ll understand why the locals lovingly call their country the “land of the eternal blue sky”. Mongolia’s unique beauty promises breathtaking sights at every turn, with rugged mountains, sparkling lakes, and lush plains. Not only is the scenery picture-perfect, the animals are extremely photogenic too!                                                                                                                                                                                                      Southern Mongolia (5 days) A chance for you to try riding the 2 humped Bactrian camels amongst the huge sand dunes of Southern Mongolia. Meet the camel herdsman and his family and then go on to see the land of the Dinosaurs, with relics from 60 million years ago.

Central Mongolia (3 days) Visit to a huge Buddhist Erdene Zuu monastery, the symbolic ruins of the ancient capital Karakorum, and a great extinct volcano area with White Lake. Visit nomadic horseman family and sample their home made dairy products.

Northern Mongolia (11 days) Khuvsgul Lake is the second biggest freshwater lake in Asia after Baikal and is a great place for fishing and boating and hiking through the beautiful scenery on land to explore the flora and fauna. Plus here you will meet Tsaatan reindeer nomads and explore their lifestyle.

Itinerary
Day-1.Be Awed By An Ancient Monastery Amarbayasgalant
It’s another day of scenic travel before resting in a ger next to an ancient monastery. One of the largest Buddhist monastic centres in Mongolia, the Monastery of Tranquil Felicity is a truly spectacular sight, with Chinese, Mongolian, and Tibetan-influenced architecture. The grounds sit in the middle of vast plains, with great views of the Mongolian steppes and the Iven Valley. At almost 300-years-old, the monastery is also a historically-important landmark — it’s one of the rare monasteries that avoided complete destruction by the Soviets during the 1937 Stalinist purges. Overnight in Ger camp ( L D )
Day-2.Uran togoo volcanic crater
Our destination for today is Uran togoo. Its about 60 kilometer directly west of Bulgan city is the extinct volcano of Uran Uul and nearby Togoo Uul, now part of the 1600 hectare Uran Togoo-Tulga Uul natural reserve in the village of Khutag-Ondor. Trial to the top of the relatively unimpressive volcano lead up from the west side, which also have some nice camping areas. The Uran Togoo-Tulga Uul national monument is a national protected area in the Bulgan province. This mountain ranks as 4th highest mountain and its protected in 1965. In 1995, it was designated as a monument by Parliament Resolution with an area of 5800 hectares. Overnight in Ger camp ( B L D )

Day-5.Ride A Horse Across Epic Landscapes and visit to the Tsaatan people
It’s the last stretch toward Khövsgöl Aimag, the northern-most province of Mongolia and territory of the elusive reindeer nomads. But first — a horse-riding expedition across breathtaking valleys, streams, forests, and mountains. The route to the Tsaatan camp is passable only by horse, and takes anywhere between five to seven hours to complete. That said, the journey will be pleasant, as the sure-footed Mongolian horses are a joy to ride. These horses aren’t your usual breed — they’ve gone through centuries of travelling across the massive steppes, and were a major winning force in the Mongol Empire’s bloody battles. Upon arrival at the reindeer camp, spend the night in traditional Tsaatan huts, otherwise known as teepees! With zero light pollution in the Mongolian countryside, we’ll get to stargaze under the dazzling night sky. Overnight in ( B L D )
Day-6.Experience Life As A Reindeer Nomad
Rise bright and early for a full day with the Tsaatan nomads! For centuries, the Tsaatans have survived off the land, relying on their reindeer for transport, milk, cheese, meat, and even materials like dung for fuel, antlers for tools, and hair for clothes. The nomad herders are extremely hospitable and enthusiastic about sharing their way of life. Riding and milking reindeer are must-try activities — and we might discover a natural reindeer herder among us! As one of the few remaining indigenous groups of reindeer herders, the Tsaatans are a disappearing culture due to the dwindling population of reindeer. Today, only about 40 families remain who continue their centuries-old traditions. While their camp is difficult to get to, it’s a priceless opportunity to experience their way of life while it’s still around. At the end of the day, it’s back to stargazing under teepees — just another regular night in Mongolia! Overnight in teepee tent ( B L D )
