Wilderness adventure in Tsaatan region ( 16day/15nights )

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. Embrace Mongolia's History and ancient Capital The tour will take you through some of Mongolia’s history, with visits to historic spots as the Erdenezuu monastery and Karakorum. 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.
