Real Mongolian Winter Is Here ( 12day/11nights )

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. Experience Real Frozen Winter and Be Amazed By Ice Festival on the Frozen Lake "Khuvsgul" After the Grand Opening Ceremony, spectators can enjoy a great variety of competitions involving popular Mongolian activities such as long distance horse sledge racing, ice skating, tug of war, ice sumo wrestling, ice carving, archery and the traditional Mongolian game of shagai or knuckle bone shooting. 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. 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 winter and spring months.

Overview

Mongolia is one of the world’s last unspoilt destinations. It is a land of mystery, of extremes, of immeasurable space, where shamanism is still practised and people hunt with eagles. This is a land as diverse as it is dramatic, from the rugged mountains and dense forests of the north, to the lush grasslands of the central plains and the rolling desert dunes of the south. This is a land where culture, history and landscape are inextricably entwined, where nomadic herders still roam the vast steppe as they have since the time of Genghis Khan, and where the hospitality of its people is as boundless as its terrain.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                So the end of trip, we will be amazed by one of the greatest Adventure of Mongolian Winter. Each March, residents of Khuvsgul Lake area celebrate the Festival of Ice. The festival involves a great variety of activities and competitions, including Ice Sumo, ice sculptures, ice skating and sleigh rides, all on or by the shores of the beautiful Lake Khuvsgul. This two-day event is also a shamanist ceremony of offering and provides a fascinating insight into the Tsaatan people's way of life. For a trip with a difference!

"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.

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 Overnight in ( B L D )
